Course Description

This class is an ongoing opportunity to learn more about several important characters in the New Testament who often get overlooked: the women who were with the Lord during his earthly ministry.

The most prominent of these women is, of course, Mary, and the class will go through the church’s understanding of Mary in Scripture and Tradition using John Paul II’s encyclical, “Redemptoris Mater,” which can be downloaded for free by clicking here: REDEMPTORIS MATER.

As the class progresses into looking at the lives of other women who served as powerful examples of Christ in the New Testament, material will be drawn from the book, Women of the New Testament, by scripture scholar Camille Fronk Olson.

Meeting TImes

Classes meet every Tuesday evening in the church basement, from 7:00–8:30pm. If you can’t make one evening, or have to miss an evening throughout the duration of the course, that’s okay! Come when you can–each evening will bring a new look into the lives of the women in our Church history.
