Our mission is the education and faith-formation of young people.
Following in the footsteps of our Founder, Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, we aim to nurture in our students an informed and vibrant faith that they can share with everyone they meet. The Province of Meribah runs two high schools on Long Island— Chaminade High School and Kellenberg Memorial High School. St. Martin de Porres Marianist School is also under the direction of the Province of Meribah, educating and serving students ranging from pre-K through the 8th grade.
The Province of Meribah is privileged to have three retreat houses. Meribah is located in Muttontown, New York, not too far from the north shores of Long Island. Students from Chaminade High School will often find themselves here at some point, or many points, throughout their years at Chaminade on a retreat with friends, brothers, and teachers. Emmanuel is located within the campus of Kellenberg Memorial High School and is used by both students and outside groups alike. It's convenient location and familiar atmosphere provides an excellent source of spiritual renewal for those attending a retreat. Founder's Hollow is truly a special place to our Province and to all those who find themselves there. Located in Accord, New York, Founder's is approximately 2½ hours north of Long Island. Surrounded by acres of wooded property, Founder's grants retreatents a perfect place to pray, reflect, and relax. It is no surprise that our students, and faculty, are often asking, "When can we go to Founder's?"
"Ours is indeed a grand work, a magnificent work, and if it is universal in scope, it is because we are missionaries of Mary, who says to us, 'Do whatever He tells you.'"
