The Virgin Mary plays a huge role in the life of the Catholics.

On the Solemnity of the Annunciation, Wednesday, March 25 at 5:30pm, Msgr. Frank Leo Jr. will deliver a public lecture (one hour) on “The Marian Paradigm in the Life and Writings of John Henry Newman” at the centre (3484 Peel St., Montreal). A reception will follow.
