Xaverian Society

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and the Xaverian Brothers left a legacy of Catholic education for us in Southern Maryland. And St. Mary's Ryken is a vibrant community today because of their drive and determination - and also because of your generosity. St. Mary's Ryken is grateful to all those whose thoughtful planning has helped ensure a secure future for the school.

Our academic excellence has been sustained by the commitment and vision of generous donors whose gifts have improved campus facilities, strengthened faculty and academic resources, and provided access for students, regardless of their financial backgrounds.


The St. Francis Xavier Society

The St. Francis Xavier Society was formed in 1989 to recognize those individuals who demonstrate exceptional leadership and financial commitment to St. Mary's Ryken. Named for the patron saint of the Xaverian Brothers, the society stands strong today with over 120 members who are devoted to promoting the mission of St. Mary's Ryken.
