St. Augustine Parish offers several opportunities each year to study God’s Word and how it applies to our daily lives. Each year from September through May, several groups gather on a weekly basis using Catholic Scripture Study International’s acclaimed and doctrinally sound program for an in-depth study of one or more books of the Bible. Our next session begins in September 2015. This year we ares studying the Book of Isaiah and will offer two opportunities each week:
- Tuesdays 1-2:30pm beginning September 22nd
- Wednesdays 7-8:30pm beginning September 23rd
The Book of Isaiah has been referred to as the gospel of the Old Testament because Isaiah prophesied more about the Messiah than any other book in the Old Testament. He also described in great detail the blessings of the future kingdom of the Messiah. His coming would be as a lion bringing the day of God’s wrath, but first He would come as a Savior who would die for the sins of the people. Isaiah focuses on the salvation that will come through the Messiah.
Registration ends September 18th. The fee of $65 helps to cover the cost of materials. Please use this form to register and bring or mail to the parish office or email Danette Morris with your name, contact info (phone and preferred email), and which time option you prefer.
Each session meets for 1 1/2 hours a week to discuss the current reading, share answers to a set of study questions and view a DVD featuring a theologian who provides the groups gathered with deeper insight into the passages just studied. These studies are suitable for all adults from beginner through advanced. For more information on this program email Danette Morris at email@example.com.
We also offer short (4-6 week) studies several times per year especially during the penitential seasons of Advent and Lent. Information about each study is posted in the bulletin at least 4-6 weeks prior to its start.
