MARY IN THE BIBLE....

Mary is by far the most influential female figure in the Catholic Church. 

 

It is through scripture that we really understand who she is and why she is so important to our faith.

 

Below, you will find several Bible passages about Mary along with some questions for you to answer.

JUMPING AHEAD.... 


Next month we will be taking a look at the structure of the church.

But, the church is more than just a building! You will find out more about that in next month's session.

Right now, however, in order to prepare for the topic, please watch this video clip with your parent on the Nicene Creed, which we say every week at Mass. Then, have a discussion using the questions below.
