We are currently in the midst of May, the month of Mary. Consider logging into http://formed.org and checking out one of the great Marian studies!
The Bible and the Virgin Mary is a dynamic twelve-part video series that beautifully explains the Catholic truths about Our Lady showing how she has been a part of God’s plan to bring salvation to the world since the beginning of time. In addition to explanation of dogmas, answers to common objections, and demonstration of Mary’s presence in the Old and New Testaments, this study discusses Church-approved Marian apparitions that play an important role in Catholic Tradition. It’s sure to help Catholics and non-Catholics alike grow in an understanding and appreciation of the Mother of God.
Thank you SO SO much for an amazing Faith Formation Year. Our 15+ volunteers put in over 550 hours of work for the young people and families of our parish. Praise the Lord! Please stop and stay a prayer of thanksgiving for them, and a prayer for our families.
We are excitedly looking forward to next year, so be on the look out for registration materials once again in August/September for the 2016-2017 school year.
