This intriguing 8 week study into the life of our Blessed Mother and what the Church teaches about her is being conducted by our parish women's group, Women of Light. It is being held every other Monday evening beginning September 14, from 7:00 - 8:30 PM in the auditorium. To enable more women to attend, childcare for preschool age and older is also being offered. There will be a bible-based activity offered for the children while the adults participate in their own study. Advanced registration is required. For information and details, contact Kelly Podlaszewski. In the meantime, check out the trailer below for a preview of the study's content. Registration deadline is August 31.
