"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God" (Mt 4:4; cf. Deut 8:3).

If you would like to learn more about the Bible and how we should read it as Catholics, there is a section on our Links page called "The Bible" that is devoted to that subject.
Of course, you are also welcome to be a part of one of our Scripture studies. Just call Nicholas Hardesty, the Director of Religious Education, at 683-8444, ext. 26 or .
There are usually two meeting times available each week: Monday at 10 AM (in the Youth Room) or Tuesday at 7 PM (in the Parish Hall). Meetings last about an hour and a half. The cost for the study materials is usually $20.
We are currently involved in the Arise program. Arise is a three-year, parish-centered process of spiritual renewal and evangelization that enables people to deepen their faith, develop a closer relationship with Christ, grow in community, and reach out in service to others. Parishioners participate in small groups of 8-12 people, usually meeting in someone's home or in the Family Life Center. If you would like to join an Arise group, please call the Parish Office.
Keep an eye on the parish bulletin for announcements on the next bible study at Blessed Mother!
