Mary as a Model of Faith for Men

March 26 - 28, 2021

Most Catholics turn to the Blessed Virgin Mary as a spiritual mother and a model of motherhood. Like St. Ignatius discovered, Mary has so much more to offer us. Through insights from scripture and church tradition, this retreat will explore the rich ways that Mary, the first and most faithful disciple of Jesus, is a strong and courageous model of faith for men at every age and in every age.
