A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother
As we embark on another school year, it is fitting that we crank up our next adult education opportunity in the parish! Just like last year, we will be holding two classes per week of the same lesson. Thus, Wednesday, September 17 will be the first class at 1:00pm in the parish hall. This will be followed by a repeat of the same class on Thursday, September 18 at 6:00pm. This will continue for 8 consecutive weeks. To give you an idea of what this study will be like, I will simply quote from the makers of the series themselves:
“In Mary, a Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother,” you will experience an extraordinary pilgrimage through Mary’s life and see why she is an essential part of our faith. Guided by Dr. Edward Sri, you will journey through the Biblical narrative of Mary’s life and visit the places where key events in salvation history occurred. You will be introduced to the Blessed Mother on a personal level and will see how Scripture, history, and Jewish culture reveal the sorrows, anxieties, and joys Mary would have held in her heart.”
In this study you will:
- See what life was like for Mary and understand how she felt at each dramatic moment in Scripture
- Visit the grotto of Mary’s home in Nazareth, the cave where Christ was born in Bethlehem, the site of our Lord’s victory on the cross, and other rarely seen places in the Holy Land.
- Learn why Mary is such an essential part of the Catholic Faith.
- See the significance of Mary as you explore the biblical roots of our belief about her.
- Deepen your devotion to Mary as you discover our Blessed Mother in a uniquely personal way.
- Be drawn closer to Christ as Mary leads you to a more profound and personal relationship with her Son.
There is a sign up in the St. Joseph room on the kiosk for the two classes. I hope to not only see the people that have come to classes already, but to see even more people come out to be better educated in our Catholic Faith. These are golden opportunities to grow, so don’t miss out!
May the Peace of Christ be with you always!
