Matthew 4:4 “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”
The study of God’s word is very important to us. As Catholics we should never be afraid to read and study any book of the Bible, for it was the Catholic Church who compiled the very canon of Scripture, and only the Catholic Church can claim continuity of faith with the very same followers of God who wrote the books of the Bible. You are also welcome to be a part of one of our Scripture studies. For more information, please contact Norm Hayden.
Wednesday Evening Bible Study
Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus? Are you an intentional disciple of Jesus Christ? Is the Bible relevant in our lives today? Reading the Bible and spending time with Jesus is a great way to develop that relationship. What is the Catechism of the Catholic Church? If you have questions about your Catholic faith, then show up and ask them.
This weekly, open group will meet from 6 to 7 PM on Wednesdays, with an opportunity for adults and teenagers (with their parent/ guardian) to ask questions about their Catholic faith. We won't go into personal stories, but will start with the Gospel readings for the upcoming week and/or discuss topics on marriage, abortion, immigration, and anything else. We will meet in the St. John Bosco room inside the Parish Hall. All you need is your Bible and a Catechism of the Catholic Church, and we will run this program indefinitely. If you don't have a Bible/ Catechism, then we have one you can borrow. Join us at 6 PM on the following dates for:
Wednesday, August 14 - Luke 12:49-53; CCC 696, 2804

Thursday Morning Bible Study
What could be better than one Bible Study? How about two Bible studies? On Thursday mornings from 10 AM to 12 PM, we will present Ascension Press’ study on the Acts of the Apostles. This is a 20 week session, and will run 10 weeks prior to Advent, take a break, and 10 weeks prior to Easter. The cost of the study guide is $36, but it will cover both sessions. The introductory session will be Thursday, September 5 at 10 AM. The first part of the session will end November 21. If you think that you cannot make the Thursday AM time, this study features an online study, which means you can watch the video in your home with an internet connection for no additional charge. If you cannot afford the study guide, please contact the Church office for assistance.
From Ascension Press, Jeff Cavins and Sarah Christmyer, present the Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom. From their website, "Acts is the story of how a few Christians empowered by the Holy Spirit were chosen to bring Christ and the Good News to the ends of the earth. They faced secular forces, internal strife, and hostile crowds, and despite all of this, they brought the kingdom of God to a broken world and the love of God to the hearts of men." The first session will be from September 5 through November 21, with a break on the Thursday in Fall Break (October 10). The second session will be from January 16, 2020 to March 26, 2020. A one time log in code will be provided to Parishioners to access the content online if you are unable to attend the Thursday morning sessions.
