Do you want to better understand Mary’s role in your Catholic faith?

Sign up for Ave Explores: Mary.

Ave Maria Press’s newest campaign to help everyday Catholics better understand their faith gets under way October 15. Each Tuesday through November 12 readers who sign up will receive an email newsletter with links to fresh, engaging, and practical content including articles, videos, and podcasts. Resources are also available for classrooms and parishes.

Katie Prejean McGrady is your host. She gathered a variety of experts to look at the Blessed Mother’s role in areas including prayer, ministry, film, femininity, and the family. You’ll also learn about St. Joseph as a model for masculinity. Well-known Catholics such as Jeannie Gaffigan, Fr. Mike Schmitz, J.D. Flynn, and Leticia Ochoa Adams share deeply personal stories about how Mary touched their lives.

Other experts include:

  • Michael O’Neill
