Marist Mothers Prayer Group

Our Mission

MMPG is an interdenominational prayer faith group, comprised of Marist mothers who gather once a month to pray together for our children, families, and the entire Marist community. Our goal is to provide a welcoming environment for moms to get together, learn from one another, and be spiritually enriched.

Request a Prayer for a Loved One
The purpose of MMPG is to pray for the needs of the Marist students, faculty and staff, and their direct families, so please keep that in mind when making a prayer request. Extended family prayers are done under extreme circumstances. A prayer request may not be sent without the family's permission either verbally or through email. A prayer request can also be made anonymously on one's behalf. Please send your prayer requests to maristmothersprayer@gmail.com.

Weekly Rosary
MMPG holds weekly Rosary every Friday from 8:15 - 9 a.m. in Esmond Brady Memorial Chapel. All are welcome. For more information, contact Cindy Kim.

Praying for the Next Generation
Praying for the Next Generation is an interdenominational group of Marist moms who gather in a casual setting to pray for the next generation, our school, and our administrators. Join us for an hour to pray intentions or to just listen to the needs of our Marist community. We meet on the second Tuesday of the month from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. in the McDaniel-Sachs Conference Room.

Our History

Marist moms have been a vital part of the Marist community since the school was established more than a century ago, working behind the scenes to support not only their children, but also the mission and daily activities of Marist School. In 1979, a group of these moms got together to form the Marist Mothers Prayer Group (MMPG), a multidenominational group whose participants believe that one of the best things we can do for our teenage children is PRAY!
 
Over the last 40 years, the faces have changed, but the concept remains the same—prayer is a source of strength and a tremendous way to connect to the Marist community and especially to Marist mothers of all grades. On the first Friday morning every month of the school year, the MMPG gathers to pray for the needs of the Marist students, faculty, staff, and families. MMPG is open to anyone who would like to attend—there are no dues and no requirements. The monthly meetings consist of coffee/fellowship at 8:30 a.m. Moms are welcome to drop by anytime; come as you are, casual clothes are welcome!

MMPG holds an annual day retreat for past and present Marist moms. Engaging guest speakers are featured each year, and a lovely luncheon is included. Other MMPG activities include a faculty brunch each term, writing Emmaus Retreat letters for all attendees, and supporting various charitable causes under the umbrella of Marist School's Campus Ministry.
