Have you ever wondered why Mary is so important to our faith as Catholics? We turn to her in prayer, in the Mass, in the Rosary, and in Maria devotions. We honor her with special feasts celebrating the significant events in her life. We place images of her in our churches and homes. Get to know this extraordinary woman, and know she is your mother too.
Couples for Christ invites you to join us for 3 nights, to learn more about Mary - from October 22nd to October 24th with Fr. Morrison La Porte of Curacao at the Risen Christ Church in South Reward from 7pm to 9pm.
The themes for each night are:
Mary in the mystery of Christ;
Mary woman of the Eucharist;
May in the lives of all Christians.
See you there!
