On Monday, July 11th, a group of young people from Bogota, Colombia visited St. Francis of Assisi Parish to share some tradition with us! They performed a few dances, and then heard some life stories from a few members of our community. Thank you to all who helped bring this event together!

The Bible and the Virgin Mary is a dynamic twelve-part video series that beautifully explains the Catholic truths about Our Lady showing how she has been a part of God’s plan to bring salvation to the world since the beginning of time. In addition to explanation of dogmas, answers to common objections, and demonstration of Mary’s presence in the Old and New Testaments, this study discusses Church-approved Marian apparitions that play an important role in Catholic Tradition. It’s sure to help Catholics and non-Catholics alike grow in an understanding and appreciation of the Mother of God.
