The Bible and the Virgin Mary The month of May has traditionally been designated by the Catholic Church as a special time to honor Mary Mother of God. This month is particularly notable as the Church celebrates the 100th anniversary of the appearance of Our Lady at Fatima. But many people don’t fully appreciate Mary’s role in mankind’s salvation. Exactly who is the Blessed Virgin Mary? What is her role in God’s plan for the world? What vital role does she play in our lives? If you would like to find the answer to these questions and better understand how essential she really is to your faith journey, come join us in exploring the video series, The Bible and the Virgin Mary. Based upon Dr. Scott Hahn’s bestselling book Hail, Holy Queen, this 12 week series unveils the mysteries of Our Lady. Sessions are held Thursdays 6:30pm, St. Peter’s Hall, at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. Each episode is approximately 30 minutes, followed by prayer and discussion.
