Join us for a Southern California event

Encountering Mary Magdalene Past and Present

November 12

1:00-5:00 pm


There has been a surge of interest in Mary Magdalene in recent years. Join us for an afternoon with acclaimed cultural historian Kayleen Asbo as she leads us through a labyrinth of history, art, interactive experiences and sacred music in search of the truth about Mary Magdalene’s role in the early days of Christianity and what she has to teach us about surviving – and thriving – in these complex times.
