Holy Mary, Mother Mary, Model Mary: An Advent Day of Prayer in Celebration of the Immaculate Conception
The Marian Feast Day celebration of the Immaculate Conception is a time for Mary’s sons and daughters in the Church to draw closer to her, especially as we prepare to celebrate the birth of her son. In our Advent day of reflection and prayer, we will honor Mary as the first Christian, the first disciple, the mother of the Church. How can her witness as a model of faith, compassion, and courage be more clearly our own?
