São Paulo, Brazil -- Theology for Mothers

Ibirapuera Cultural Center has offered a cycle of conferences on “Theology for Mothers” each semester since 2008. Thanks to these weekly classes, many women have had the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the faith and of fundamental aspects of the Pontifical magisterium, especially as seen in recent documents of Pope Benedict XVI. This deepening in the faith has lead many of them to intensify their own use of the sacraments. Those giving classes included Dr. Nazaré Lins Barbosa, an attorney for São Paulo’s city council; Lia Vidigal, who holds a doctorate in theology; and Vilma Tomasso, who has a doctorate in religious studies.
