Scope and Contents

This collection contains five Marian activity program booklets created by the Franciscans (Order of Friars Minor). The programs were organized by scholastic units of the Province of the Immaculate Conception (New York, N.Y.) from 1959-1964. The booklets outline day or evening programs during each liturgical year and include brief talks or papers given during the programs. Programs were primarily held at Franciscan seminaries in the Northeast region of the United States, but also included some national and international locations. The themes covered during each scholastic year were selected by the Franciscan National Marian Board and include: Mary and Church Unity (1959-1960), St. Bernadine of Siena and Mary (1960-1961), Mary in Sacred Scripture (1961-1962), Mary and Reunion (1962-1963), and Mary and Ecumenism (1963-1964). The collection documents Franciscan study and teaching related to the Blessed Virgin Mary in the early 1960s.
