The Bible Timeline study will take us on a guided journey through salvation history, exploring how fourteen of the Bible’s narrative books tell the biblical story from beginning to end and giving us the keys to understanding the amazing story woven throughout Scripture.
In this revolutionary approach to Bible study, The Bible Timeline divides the Bible into twelve time periods that make the narrative thread easier to follow. Using a unique Bible Timeline chart, we will learn the major people, places, and events of the Bible and discover how they all come together to reveal the remarkable story of our Faith.
Through this study, we will learn how to read and understand the entire Bible and to discover the wonderful narrative of Scripture in a way that will transform our lives.
Note: If you have already taken this wonderful study, you may want to consider taking it, again … although the lesson is the same, the videos are new and greatly improved!
Classes begin August 7, but join us any time:
Mondays at 7:00pm

Do We Realize How Richly We’ve Been Blessed?
Embark on a guided tour of the “Holy of Holies” of biblical theology. The book of Hebrews is like a little Catechism. It is steeped in rich truths that are foundational to our Catholic Faith … which can be difficult for even the most seasoned Bible scholars to unpack.
This study will draw out the riches of the sublime book of Hebrews in a way that makes them easier to understand. It draws connections between the Old and New Testaments, the Liturgy, the Eucharist, the priesthood, and so much more. Most importantly, Hebrews will help us to appreciate the astounding generosity of God as we explore the wonders He has given us in His Church.
Classes begin the week of August 6:
Wednesdays at 9:45am in the Lower Conference Room and on zoom
Wednesdays at 7:00pm on zoom
Thursdays at 7:00pm in the Lower Conference Room
Saturdays at 8:30am on zoom

EPHESIANS: DISCOVER YOUR INHERITANCE AS A CHILD OF GOD
Ephesians was one of the most widely circulated of St. Paul’s writings because of its powerful, practical instructions for us as disciples of Christ: it contains some of the most discussed passages in the New Testament. In this study, we will explore many important themes that are still relevant in today’s culture and society, especially the preeminence of grace in God’s plan and the treasures that await us as adopted sons and daughters in the family of God.
Wednesday and Saturday morning study groups … more study groups are forming now
Study groups will begin the first week in June 2023

A Biblical Walk Through The Mass
The Mass is nothing short of amazing. Through it, we encounter God in the most intimate way possible as we hear him speak to us in the Liturgy of the Word and as we receive him Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Holy Eucharist.
The words, the gestures, and the rituals of the Mass are rich in meaning. Everything we say and do in the Liturgy is steeped in biblical language. A Biblical Walk Through the Mass explores the extraordinary biblical roots of the Liturgy and reveals what it all means and why it all matters. This fascinating tour of the Mass will renew our faith and deepen our love for and devotion to the Holy Eucharist.
“Dr. Sri’s best-selling study program, A Biblical Walk Through the Mass, has been a blessing for thousands over the past decade. … We need to recommit ourselves to the central act of our faith with passion and joy. This marvelously written aid will help us join ourselves to the Lord as he offers himself to the Father in the Sacrifice of the Mass.”Most Referend Charles J. Chaput

UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF THE BIBLE
Sundays at 10 AM beginning May 15
Have you ever tried to read the Bible and found it confusing? THEN THIS IS THE BIBLE STUDY FOR YOU!
Many of us want to read the Bible because we know it is God’s Word, but we can give up because it seems so complicated. The Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible study helps us to get the “big picture” by showing how fourteen narrative books of the Bible tell the complete story from Adam and Eve to Christ and the Church…and breaks the story into 12 periods. As we study together in a virtual group, we will discover the story of salvation history and explore how each of us fits into God’s plan. The unique color-coded Bible Timeline® Chart that accompanies the study arranges the key people, places, and events of Scripture in chronological order. This study is great for beginners and experienced students of the Bible, alike.
