The Province of Brasil was founded in 1908. At present, Marist Brasil includes:

  • The Province of « Brasil Rio Grande do Sul », formed by the Provinces of « Porto Alegre », founded in 1963, and « Santa Maria », in 1964. In 2003 « Rio Grande do Sul » created the « District of Amazonia » which depends on the Province.

Finally, the Province of « Cruz del Sur », restructured in 2003 as the fruit of previous divisions. The Province of « Argentina », founded in 1904, was divided into two: « Luján » and « Córdoba » in 1964. The Province of « Rio de la Plata » was founded in 1992.
