Bible Study isn’t just a matter of gaining intellectual knowledge of the Bible; it is also about gaining a greater understanding of God’s love and concern for creation. The purpose of reading and knowing the Bible is to enrich our relationship with God.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church enshrines these famous words of the Second Vatican Council: “Access to sacred Scripture ought to be open wide to the Christian faithful.”
And as Pope Benedict XVI reminds us, “a study of the Bible is not only an intellectual pursuit but also a spiritual adventure that should inﬂuence our dealings with God and neighbor.”
The Catholic Church and The Mass are as Biblical as any institution or event in the world, and yet too often Catholics feel ignorant of the Bible, even though they’ve been “listening” to the Bible readings every Sunday at Mass throughout their lives.
During the year, we offer multi-week sessions in Scripture studies, and the ancient Christian practice of Lectio Divina. This combination of study and meditation will help Catholics to grow in their knowledge and spiritual awareness while deepening their understanding of the riches of our shared Catholic faith.
