St. Augustine Parish offers several opportunities each year to study God’s Word and how it applies to our daily lives.
Our next study is a short thematic study for the Year of Faith. This six week bible study designed by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ (EWTN) specifically for the Year of Faith approaches the bible examining themes rather than specific books of the bible. These themes include belief in Jesus, assent to Creed, conversion, witness of charity, faith and new evangelization. The sessions will be on Monday nights in the Friary, 7-8:30pm April 1, 8, 16(Tuesday), 22, 29, May 6, and 13. Please register with Sr. Madonna (above) . Registration fee of $15 covers cost of materials.
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 book of the Bible. To date we have studied the Gospels of John and Matthew, Acts of the Apostles, Genesis, Exodus, Revelation and are currently in the final weeks of study of Paul’s Letter to the Romans. 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. Sign-ups for this annual study are typically held from mid-August to mid-September. For more information on this program email Danette Morris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
