Celebrating Saint Mary Magdalene

Dominican Center at Marywood, 2025 Fulton St East, Grand Rapids, MI 49503 View Map
Monday, July 22 - 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

Saint Mary Magdalene is “the one who loved Christ and who was loved by Him” and in her honor the “paradigm of the ministry of women in the Church” is recognized. These are the words of Pope Francis celebrating Saint Mary Magdalene's July 22 Feast Day.

But who was this Mary, where did all the distortions of her life originate, and why did the Dominicans choose her as the patron of their Order? Together, we will search the Scriptures for her historical footprint and for gender criticism of her story. We will conclude with a short prayer in her honor. Please bring a Bible with you.
