How It Works
The study consists of four main parts: the videos, the workbook, the supplemental materials, and the leader guide. The videos contain the bulk of the content, and can be viewed by themselves for a rich catechetical experience, but they were designed to be accompanied by the workbook. With a space for notes, recommended reading assignments, review questions, discussion questions and review notes, you’ll be fully prepared to absorb the rich content from the videos.
Supplemental readings come from Hail, Holy Queen, the Bible, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Our participant kit contains the workbook and Hail, Holy Queen.

“This is excellent! Not only have I learned from this study but I now have the tools to defend Marian doctrine. Bravo! God reward you!”
“I am a cradle Catholic. We recited the Rosary every evening as a family. My mother had a very strong devotion to Mary. Yet, never have I heard anyone make all these biblical connections to really explain the reasons why we believe what we believe. I am so grateful for this in depth study of Mary.”
- Adrienne B.
“These are wonderful . . . The Biblical and theological basis for our understanding of Mary is so well conveyed! While primarily focused on Catholic viewers to strengthen our faith, common objections from our non-Catholic brothers and sisters are addressed in a cogent, faith-filled, well documented and loving way . . . This is an awesome treasure.”
- Kurt E.
