A Fall Scripture Study
Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother is an eight week Scripture study which we will begin the Wednesday after Labor Day, Sept. 7 at 6:30PM in the Activity Center. The 8 Wednesdays will carry s through the end of October (Oct. 26).
This study is an extraordinary pilgrimage that reveals Mary’s unique role in God’s Kingdom and in our lives. Filmed on location in the Holy Land, Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother will place you in the midst of the powerful drama of her earthly life, taking with you through her joys...and her sorrows. You will learn how she works in our lives today, drawing us ever closer to her Divine Son. Seeing Mary in this way will change you forever. Mary will become a part of your daily life, and in your daily life, and you will become more like Christ. There will be a 30-minute masterful video presentation by Dr. Edward Sri each week and group discussions to follow. The sessions will be 1 1/2 hours. The cost of the book is $25.
