Mary, Mother of Jesus Advent Bible Study

Tuesdays: December 1, 8, 15, and 22

9:00-10:00 am | Via Zoom

How well do you know Mary, the mother of Jesus? We know her through many means: the traditional Christmas pageant, music, art, legend, and theologies of different faith traditions, just to name a few. All of these windows give us a multidimensional view into Mary’s identity and some hold personal and important meanings for our faith journey. If we study scripture alone, what do we learn about Mary, the mother of Jesus? What information is given to us in the biblical narratives? Traditions have given us such expansive possibilities into Mary’s identity, but what happens when we just focus on the scriptures?

This Advent season, all are welcome to participate in a virtual Bible Study that explores the glimpses of Mary in the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John. Prince of Peace Church’s Parish Associate, Rev. Dottie LaPenta, will lead the study. If you have any questions or wish to receive the Zoom link, please email Rev. Dottie LaPenta at
