Topic: Mary in our Christian Life: How Much Does She Matter?
Presenter: Sister Elise Saggau
During this day of reflection, we will consider Mary as a companion to us on our Christian journey. There will be exploration of some of what the New Testament writings tell us about Mary and what some contemporary theologians say about her. We will look for the historical Mary and see why she matters for us today. Presentations will be accompanied by times for personal reflection and discussion.
