Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary Book Study
Wednesdays, January 8 - February 19, 6:30 - 7:45 p.m.
Join Fr. John as he discusses Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary. This book takes readers step-by-step from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation to reveal how deeply biblical Catholic beliefs about Mary really are. The author uses the Old Testament and Ancient Judaism to unlock how the Bible itself teaches that Mary is in fact the new Eve, the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, and the new Ark of the Covenant.
There is no cost for this study which will meet in the sanctuary on Wednesday evenings beginning January 8.
The Bible and the Church Fathers
Tuesdays, January 7 - March 24, 9:30-11:15 am
The Bible and the Church Fathers will teach you everything you need to know about how the Bible took form. You’ll learn powerful tools for reading it, and you’ll understand Scripture’s relationship to Tradition and, in particular, to the Sacraments. What’s more, you’ll recognize the powerful effect of Scripture on the Church Fathers. For them, this was no academic pursuit. Their love of God’s Word transformed their lives—just as it has the power to transform ours today.
Reflections on the Gospel of Matthew
Returning January 5, Sundays, 9:15-10:15 am
Fr. John leads the group in a reflection on this first book of the gospels. This is an approachable study where individuals can drop in at anytime to join the group. Join us for coffee and discussion between the morning Masses on Sundays.
