Caitlin Cipolla-McCulloch”Mary as Nurturer: A Model for the Church, Marianist Family, and Global Community,” Graduate Student Summer Fellowship, 2023. Cipolla-McCulloch's research looks at the intersection between the Marianist Family and the cultic practice that surrounds and accompanies the image of La Virgen de la Puerta. With help from source material from the Marian Library including a Spanish language text that captures the history of the shrine at the mid-20th century, dissertation materials from 20th-century Marianists and monographs from Marianist Mariologist Emile Neubert, she can continue exploring the relationship between the Marianist Family and this image of Mary. This research is multicultural and polyphonic. It aims to showcase how considering the cultic practice surrounding La Virgen de la Puerta in conversation with the Marianist Charism offers us a new model for considering the role of Mary in the Church today.
