Faith-sharing groups engage in prayer, mutual support for one another, continued learning through reflection on Scripture, and outreach to share the mission of Jesus with others. Our parish has a few different groups meeting on different days and times; you may find one that fits your schedule. All groups welcome new members.
Sunday Morning Bible Study @ 10AM
This group is an extension of the Arise Together in Christ program. The group’s current topic is the Gospel of St. Luke. If you would like to join them on Sunday mornings, they meet in person in the rectory basement meeting room (use the glass door behind the Mary statue). For questions or to ask about a Zoom option, contact Noila Johnson: email@example.com.
Monday Evening Bible Study @ 7PM on Zoom
Through the Word is a Catholic bible study program that draws from the 73 books of the canon of Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the teachings of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church, to bring Christ in the Word to you. The Zoom recording of the study is emailed on Tuesday mornings following the study, and a brief midweek reflection is emailed to participants on Wednesdays. For those who can join on Mondays a bit earlier before the study, the facilitator will lead participants in praying two decades of the holy rosary beginning at 6:40PM. The group has engaged in a year-long study on Sunday Reading Reflections so that we can journey together through the liturgical year. Starting in September 2023, they will undertake an insightful three-month study on the Eucharist, exploring the connection between Scripture and the Catechism to cultivate a deeper affection for our Eucharistic Lord. All are welcome! Please feel free to invite others to the study. To join the Monday evening study on Zoom, email Joe Terry: firstname.lastname@example.org.
ON DEMAND OPTION: Recordings of Through the Word bible studies can be viewed on YouTube on the Brooklyn Theologian channel (@bktheologian) for those unable to attend the Monday evening Zoom meetings. You can also bookmark this page and return weekly to watch in the window below.
