Marist Institute

 

F.M.S. - Fratres Maristæ a Scholis

On January 2nd, 1817, Marcellin Champagnat founded in La Valla, France, the lay religious Institute, or religious Institute of Brothers, under the name of Little Brothers of Mary. He saw it as forming a branch of the Society of Mary.

In 1863 the Holy See approved us as an autonomous Institute of pontifical right. While respecting our original name, it gave us the title of Marist Brothers of the Schools (F.M.S.- Fratres Maristae a Scholis).

 

From the time of its founding, the mission of the institute has been to “make Jesus known and loved” among young people, especially those considered most in need.  Today there are about 4000 brothers and 50,000 laypeople educating nearly 500,000 young people in 79 countries of the world.
