Bible Study Groups


Catholic Bible studies are an important way of understanding the Catholic faith and encountering God in Sacred Scripture. The more we understand God’s word in Sacred Scripture, the more we are able to see how the Word of God is expressed in Sacred Tradition.  Learning about the bible will deepen your experience of the Church’s greatest prayer: the Mass.

Men’s Bible Study

The Men’s Bible Study is here to help build and fortify men in preparation for their roles as leaders in their families, churches, communities, and workplaces.

As a class member, you will spend time in personal study of the Scriptures each week and you will join other men in discussion of the lesson and learn from a teaching leader how the truths of Scripture can be applied to daily life.

Men’s Bible Study meets weekly on Thursday from 6:00 am to 7:00 am in Room B of the Family Life Center.

For more information about the Bible Study contact David Merrick at 318-344-5017.
