Fr. Joseph, MIC: Who We Are


Greetings from Eden Hill — the grounds of the Marian Helpers Center and the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy. This location in Stockbridge, Mass., is the spiritual home of the Association of Marian Helpers.

Officially established in 1945, the Association began as a small handful of friends who believed in and supported the work of the Marians. Now some 1.5 million members strong, the Association is a spiritual benefit society which continues to prayerfully and financially support the priests and brothers of the Congregation of Marians of the Immaculate Conception.

Enrolled members share in the spiritual benefits of the Holy Masses, prayers, and good works of the Marians. Through this website, our Marian Helper member magazine, and various other materials, members receive information about the Marian family and are encouraged to strive for personal holiness. You can enroll yourself or others, living and deceased.

Remembering the souls of the departed is an important ministry of my Congregation. Many people have come to know us from our remembrance cards and enrollment folders.

But we also have many other ministries and services:

Please browse the rest of our site and discover the different ways you can enjoy being a member of the Association of Marian Helpers.

May the Lord bless you and yours.

Sincerely in Jesus and Mary Immaculate,

Fr. Joseph, MIC
