The purpose of this ministry group is to grow in love and knowledge of the Lord through the study of His Holy Word.  As stated by St. Jerome, “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.”  Gatherings promote self-study, group discussion and will often feature short lectures or DVD presentations.

All members share the responsibility of creating an atmosphere of loving support, trust and encouragement where sisters in Christ can share their insights and experiences.  All materials are faithful to the Catholic Church’s teaching on Sacred Scripture.

As is true of all other ministries, the most important element of this ministry is prayer.  Prayer brought this ministry into existence and has sustained it in our parish for many years.

This ministry gathers on Thursday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Parish Center and offers several studies during the year. Many women choose to attend morning Mass prior to the study (please check the bulletin or website for seasonal time changes).

 WOMEN’S EMMAUS  SCRIPTURE STUDY

FALL 2019

Paul’s letter to the Romans has been at the center of reflection, conversion, and controversy from the very beginning. “Romans: The Gospel of Salvation” provides an authentically Catholic, comprehensive, and simple way to understand the overarching theme of Romans—salvation.

 “Romans: The Gospel of Salvation” explores the ways in which Jesus is the fulfillment of Israel’s prophecies, which leads to the universal, “Catholic” family of God.

Theology professor Dr. Andrew Swafford and Jeff Cavins examine Paul’s letter to the Romans. They provide historical context and highlight the connections to Jesus and Christianity Paul makes with the Old Testament.
