Blessed Mary: Virgin. Mother. Apostle. God-bearer? Wise One?
May 10–12, 2019
Mary has occupied a central place in the Christian imagination, but that place has been hotly contested and has many faces. We have barely begun to explore the expanse of meaning she offers to us. Mary’s experience and qualities are windows into our own potential, as well as an avenue to God. Come get to know Mary as a sister, as one of us. Come explore your own fertility, your own virginity, your own message, wisdom, and place in the body of Christ. Let this fullness be with you according to God’s word!
Led by the Rev. Dr. Shane Phelan, co-founder of the religious order The Companions of Mary the Apostle, with the Rev. Daniel Simons, Director of Spiritual Formation, Trinity Retreat Center.
