Bible Study

Education in the faith is a life long journey that ebbs and flows. Opportunities for community fellowship, small groups and individual self-reflection are offered throughout the year. We offer several Bible Study groups, a Book Club, severak intergenreatinal groups and numerous resources.


This fall we will offer two different bible studies to choose from.

  FirstRevelationsThe Kingdom Yet to Come. by Ascension Press. This is an intriguing 11-session study program that shows how the kingdom established by Christ in his Church is intimately connected with the kingdom of heaven. It will be offered on Monday evenings in the Parish Center at 7:00p.m. and on Wednesday mornings at 9:45 a.m. in the Convent building. 

Our second offering is Unlocking the Mysteries of the Bible and is also by Ascension Press.  This is a great study for anyone new to Bible Studies or those who want to learn more about the Bible. Many people want to read the Bible because they know it is God’s Word but give up because it is so complicated. This 8 week study program helps you to get the “big picture” of the Bible by showing how fourteen narrative books of the Bible tell the complete story from Adam and Eve to Christ and the Church.  This session is offered on Tuesday’s at 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Center.
