Wednesday Morning: The Meaning of Mary Magdalene

June 7, 14, and 21 at 10AM and repeated at 7PM

Was Mary Magdalene Jesus’s most important disciple? Did she understand his teaching best?

Using Cynthia Bourgeault’s work, we’ll look at how Mary became such an important saint.  We’ll take a look at scripture, church tradition, art, legend, newly discovered texts and the wisdom of the Christian contemplatives.

The book is not required, but if you’d like a copy for yourself, here are the details: The Meaning of Mary Magdalene: Discovering the Woman at the Heart of Christianity by Cynthia Bourgeault.
