Mary, Explained

During our second year of preparation for our diocesan Golden Jubilee, Bishop Burbidge has invited us to look at Mary and imitate her example of receiving the Word and bearing the Word into the world.

To imitate Mary, it is helpful to understand what the Church teaches about who she is. In this 7-part video series, we will hear from religious, priests, and lay faithful from our diocese explain the theology, traditions, and devotions about Our Lady.
