The Diocese of Orlando has just announced dates for the 2012 Marian Congress. The two day event will be held on October 12 and 13, 2012.
The 2011 Marian Congress held last month was attended by 650 participants. New Testament scholar Fr. Randy Soto and diocesan priests, Fr. Miguel Gonzales and Fr. Esau Garcia, offered personal testimony and theological insights into our Blessed Mother’s role in Catholic life while Master of Ceremonies, Fr. Ed McCarthy, shared his exuberant humor.
The opening liturgy will be celebrated at the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe on Friday, October 12, 2012. On Saturday, October 13, 2012, Fr. William Ennis and the community of Holy Family Church will host the Marian presentations.
Continuing our multilingual format, we will pray the Rosary during the opening celebrations in many languages and offer concurrent Marian presentations in Spanish and English.
Mark your calendars and plan to join us. Stay tuned for more information!
