The Marianist LIFE summer programs are a faith formation experience for high school students and their moderators. Moderators (campus ministers, youth ministers, teachers, adult volunteers, etc.) attend Moderator Days prior to the students arrival to learn about Marianist LIFE and the summer program, in addition to building and modeling communities of faith. The students arrive for a week-long experience of small faith communities, sacraments, prayer, leadership development, retreat, and social justice education.
Gross Catholic students and their MLC faculty leaders attend the program each July at the Bergamo Retreat Center in Dayton, Ohio.
