Association of Marian Helpers — Join us! Marian Helpers

are men, women, dads, moms, grandparents, families,

believed in and supported the work of the Marians. Now some 1.5-million

members strong, the Association is a spiritual benefit society that continues

to prayerfully and financially support the priests and brothers of the congrega-

tion of Marian Fathers. In turn, as a Marian Helper, you share in the merits

and

spiritual benefits

of all the daily

Masses, prayers,

and good works of Marian

priests and brothers all over the world

just as if you were a member of our religious

congregation!

Moreover, through our websites

, books, newsletters, pamphlets, prayercards,

an

d this very magazine,

we give you the tools to grow in holiness.

Together, we are a family in Christ! Together, let’s bring his mercy to a hurting

world! Enroll yourself or others today.
