Mary – Mother of God – Theotokos @ St. Frances Cabrini Church


Since the dawn of Christendom, Mary has been given pride of place in our devotion and worship. From a simple Jewish maiden to a mother weeping at the foot of the cross, Mary has always captured our imagination and love.

These classes will explore the theology and impact that Mary has had throughout the centuries. We will look not only at the theology concerning Mary, but at how others viewed Mary.

Come, spend a few hours on these five nights to explore the history and devotion to Mary. It will be time well spent.
