Comments from last year’s session:

This was a beautiful Mary Magdalene morning.  Great mix of Scripture, history, myth, debunking, time for reflection and sharing and prayer. Thank you! – Marilyn Antonik

I very much appreciate the careful analysis of Scripture in discerning the true biblical Mary Magdalene.  Also the source information throughout our tradition that contributed to our images of M.M. that have come down to us. – Maureen Schuneman

Excellent presentation. Gave me a different insight into M of M.  I’d recommend the program to others.              – Dave French

Mind-opening material.  Inspiration to pursue Mary of Magdala. – Pat Hamill
