The Mary, the First Disciple (Marian Medal) program is written for young Catholics, grades 6-8, to enable them to "proclaim the greatness of the Lord." This is accomplished by actively involving the participants in an understanding of Mary as a model of openness and spirituality — a woman of the church.

The adult leader guide can be purchased separately and contains the youth book for reference. Each youth needs his/her own book.

There are 4 chapters. For each chapter, there are 7-10 activities to complete. A worksheet is available for Chapter 2 - Activity 6: Honoring Our Elders.
