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.

Evening book club

“Loved As I Am: An Invitation to Conversion, Healing, and Freedom through Jesus”
By Sister Miriam James Heidland, S.O.L.T.

“When Sr. Miriam’s life as a successful college athlete proved unfulfilling, she went searching for something deeper and ended up falling in love with Jesus. In this book she shares her struggles – learning she was adopted, battling alcoholism, and healing from childhood sexual abuse – as signs of hope that anyone who desires to know Christ can find him and be loved intimately by him in return.”

I got to meet Sr. Miriam at a conference in November and was very touched by her beautiful witness to God’s love. I have been in email contact with her and there is a good chance that our book club will conclude with a visit from the author! Hope you can join us!

Date: January 17th through March 14th
Time: 7 – 8:30 pm
Place: Convent meeting room
