Marianist Mission

Marianists in the United States work in parishes, juvenile courts, catechetical and retreat centers. However, their principal apostolate is Catholic education, at both the high school and the university levels.

The formation of a Marianist begins with an aspirancy program before the novitiate. This period of preparation is followed immediately by profession of first vows.

After college the young religious begins apostolic work, frequently as a high school teacher. After three or more years of experience in the active apostolate, Brothers who are preparing for the priesthood study four years of theology.

Practically all Marianist Sisters, Brothers, and Priests take graduate studies.

All of these studies are financed by the Marianist Mission, Inc.

The Marian Studies Center

The Marian Studies Center (MSC) started unofficially with the preparations and writings of the first Volume of the Encyclopedia of the Virgin Mary in Lebanon, published in 2001.

The Founding Fathers of Notre Dame University belong to the Maronite Mariamite Order, and their congregation is fully devoted to the Virgin Mary. The University is the only institution of higher education in Lebanon and the Middle East that carries the name of the Holy Virgin, Our Lady (Notre Dame). The University Administration thought that it was entirely appropriate to establish a center for research and studies specifically related to Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ, and entitled it the Marian Studies Center. This Center concentrates on specialized research related to this subject. This specialization becomes more significant when we realize that such a center, has no competitors in Lebanon or the Middle East.

The vision of the Marian Studies Center (MSC) is to become the unique research center for theological, historical, and cultural studies on the person and the meaning of the Virgin Mary in Lebanon and the Middle East.

This is a religious and historical illustrated compendium on present and former churches and shrines dedicated to the Virgin Mary in Lebanon. It is published in a number of volumes in the format of one volume per district (caza or cada). It is published in Arabic with summaries translated into English.

Notre Dame University "Louaisze-Lebanon"

Notre Dame University - Louaize (NDU) was founded in 1987 by the Maronite Order of the Holy Virgin Mary. NDU first came into being under the name of Louaize Center for Higher Education (LCHE) in 1978. LCHE was a joint venture between Beirut University College (BUC), now Lebanese American University (LAU) and the Maronite Order of the Holy Virgin Mary.

Later, inspired by a deep apostolic concern and guided by the needs of the community, the Order decided to start a new chapter in its history by founding an independent university. The legal finalization of this project was the promulgation by the President of The Lebanese Republic of the decree number 4116 on August 14, 1987, granting the Order the right to operate an independent university. Thus, Notre Dame University - Louaize was born, the only Catholic university adopting the American education system, not only in Lebanon but also in the entire Middle East. Three years later, in June of 1991, the University awarded its first bachelor degree to seventy-two graduates.

Along the lines set by the Vatican II Council, the Order decided to call on prominent persons from the Lebanese society to oversee the operations of the University. Consequently, a Board of Trustees was established to supervise the academic and administrative operations and to help in the planning and development of the University.

As a Catholic institution inspired by the cultural and spiritual heritage of the Maronite Order of the Holy Virgin Mary, Notre Dame University - Louaize (NDU) seeks to provide comprehensive quality education that fosters excellence in scholarship, lifelong learning, enlightened citizenship, human solidarity, moral integrity, and belief in God.
