In this podcast, they interview each other about some of their experiences in the Marianist Family and their insights into the charism.

Podcast: Following Mary's Yes in the Inner City (Mike and Beth Schulz)

Lay Marianists Mike and Beth Schulz share their story about graduating from the University of Dayton and founding the Nassau Lay Marianist Community on the urban East side of Dayton.

This community would eventually start Mission of Mary Cooperative, which is a non-profit urban farm in East Dayton that also provides fresh food to low-income families. According to Mike and Beth, this entire project drew its inspiration from Mary's "Yes."
