“What the Catholic faith believes about Mary is based on what it believes about Christ, and what it teaches about Mary illumines in turn its faith in Christ. “ (CCC 487). Join Dr. Richard H. Bulzacchelli, Lecturer in Theology for Catholic Studies Academy, as he leads a live, virtual four-session seminar on the central dogmas concerning the Virgin Mary formally recognized by the Catholic Church.  What evidence do we have for these dogmas in Scripture?  How did the Church gain clarity on them over the course of the centuries?  How do they fit in with the proclamation of the Gospel?
