Our Faith and Mary: Exhibitors and Events
Preparations are underway for the Marian Library/International Marian Institute Symposium! Some exhibitors are already confirmed: Holy Cross Family Ministries, the Knights of Columbus, the Legion of Mary, the Mariological Society of America, and St. Mark’s Bookstore. Some exhibitors will be selling and others will give away items. In addition to exhibiting, the Holy Cross Family Ministries are organizing the July 31st evening Rosary Rally to pray the Luminous Mysteries. In good weather, they will lead an outdoor procession starting at Serenity Pines to progress to the Cana statue, before going to the Humanities Plaza for the Hispanic dance group to proclaim the Gospel. Next, the procession will go to the Marian statue on the pillar for a lit candle to carry into the chapel. In case of inclement weather, there will be a lovely multi-media presentation in UD’s main chapel.
The Marian Library/International Marian Institute is hosting “Our Faith and Mary,” as a contribution to the Year of Faith. The purpose of this event is to foster a deeper understanding of our faith by contemplating Mary’s faith. A principal objective is to bring together theology and spirituality–the study and the celebration of our faith. Please join us for the Symposium July 30 – August 1, 2013 on the University of Dayton campus.
