Why is Mary so important to Catholics, and why have so many people been devoted to her over the centuries?  What can we learn about her from Sacred Scripture?  Find out the answers in this Lectio series on Mary.  Featuring the insightful biblical teaching of Dr. Brant Pitre, Lectio Mary: The Bible and the Mother of God examines what Scripture, the life of Christ, and the early Church fathers reveal about Mary.  By closely examining 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.

The Lectio Mary: The Bible and the Mother of God series will begin Wednesday, December 4, at 10:00 AM in Conference Room 1 of the parish office, and Thursday, December 5, at 6:30 PM in Classroom 1 of the school.  For more information and to register, please contact Marty Best at (616) 724-3132 or mbest@stjohnvianney.net.  You may also register online: Wednesday Morning Sessions, or Thursday Evening Sessions
