At Novena Church in Singapore, the weekly Novena devotions to Our Lady are a big part of our prayer journey. On Saturday, August 22, we invite you to take a step forward in that journey by joining “Hail, Holy Queen,” a virtual event with Scott Hahn, John Bergsma, and Mike Aquilina. Co-sponsored by our partner Empower Philippines and hosted by the St Paul Center.

As part of your preparation towards the Annual Procession this year, come to appreciate more deeply the Crowning of the Icon as we learn about the Queenship of Mary at a very special online event.

Unveil the Marian mystery of the Book of Revelation, discover how Mary is foreshadowed in the Old Testament, and learn the scriptural and historical foundations for her Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity, Assumption, and Coronation.

Registration includes live streaming and on-demand access to all three talks and Q&A through September 5.
