Bible Study on the Blessed Virgin Mary

Our next adult Bible Study Course will begin on Wednesday, June 19th at 7:00pm. The class will last one hour, and the course will meet for 8 weeks. The topic is “Mary: The Bible and Mother of God,” and the instructor on video is Dr. Brant Pitre, formerly of Notre Dame Seminary. The course will involve a video and discussion.

You will learn all about how our Marian dogmas are rooted in both Testaments and why every Catholic should love Mary as Christ Himself did. Dr. Pitre examines what Scripture, the life of Christ, and the early Church Fathers reveal about Mary. He closely examines the connections between the Old and New Testaments. Dr. Pitre presents clear and easily understood explanations about the life and identity of Mary, the Mother of God. There is a workbook for the class but it is optional. If you’d like one, it is $10.00
