The North American Center for Marianist Studies offers an online course titled “Mary, Holy Possibility.” The course focuses on Mary as a believer, prophet, God-bearer/mother, disciple, and companion—reflecting on the events of her life and the life of her son Jesus. Contact Patti Gehred for more details or to enroll in the course.
The Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation (VLCFF) at the University of Dayton offers a course titled “Mary in Scripture and Tradition“. Frs. Johann Roten, S.M. and Bert Buby, S.M., two professors at the International Marian Research Institute, and Sister Jean Frisk, an expert in catechesis, designed this course on Mary to foster an appreciation of the place which the Virgin Mary occupies in the history of salvation and in the life of the Church. They also hope to build awareness of the Marian dimension of Catholic life. This advanced level course is enhanced by its link to the Mary Page of the Marian Library at the University of Dayton that contains ecclesial documents, iconography, a listing of apparitions, and practical answers to questions raised about the role of Mary in the Church today. To learn more about this course, email VLCFF or call 1-888-300-8436.
