Christian formation needs to be a lifelong process.  In order to grow in our love and understanding of our faith, we need to be lifelong learners, deepening our understanding of the scriptures, the sacraments and Christian living. Meetings are held on Tuesday evenings during the school year.

 

Why Study the Bible?
There are seventy-three books in the Bible, and many stories…it’s “the greatest story ever told”. It has been given to us through the Church and written in Sacred Scripture—not only so we can read the story, but so we can meet God there and be changed by the encounter. This “Story,” tells us who we are, why we are here, and what we were made for. It tells us that God is, that He loves us, and how He has acted through the ages so we can get from here to Him.
Reading the Bible should bring us closer to Christ, but understanding it is not always easy. Many people tell me they have tried time and again to prayerfully read Scripture, but they get frustrated because they “just don’t get it.” (Jeff Cavins, Great Adventure Bible Study)
The Adult Bible Study Ministry provides an easy and enjoyable way for adults to better understand scripture as individuals and as community. We read assignments and go over study questions on our own; then gather together weekly to review the material, share our thoughts and gain further depth and interpretation from DVD teachings by Catholic theologians. As we grow in our knowledge and appreciation for the written Word, our faith grows. Readings come alive; we uncover how much of the Mass is rooted in scripture and how dynamic it is; and we grow in knowledge and confidence to share the good news.

BIBLE STUDY GRAPHIC

Have you ever wondered why Mary is so important to our faith as Catholics?  We turn to her in prayer, in the Mass, and in the Rosary. We honor her with special feasts celebrating significant events in her life.  We place images of her in our churches and homes.  But where does all of that come from and what does it matter to our daily lives? 

Filmed on location in the Holy Land, this study will place you in the midst of the drama of her earthly life as revealed in the Scriptures, taking you through her joys and sorrows. You will learn how she works in our lives today, drawing us ever closer to her Son.

As with our prior studies, there will be video teachings, this time by Dr. Edward Sri.  You will receive a study guide with background information and study questions.  But the best part is the time we have to share what we’re learning and how it impacts our lives.  Join us!
