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).

The marvelous treasures of the Catholic Faith,
the Eucharist, Mary, the saints and the Creed,

This study brings to life
the world in which He lived and taught:
the politics, the clashing cultures, the history
and the extraordinary land.
Three of the finest contemporary theologians

Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins and Dr. Edward Sri.
This 10-part study begins Thursday, September 24th
at 9:15 in the Parish Hall for Registration, Fellowship

September 24th, 2020 to April 8th, 2021
with a month-long break for Christmas.
