Summer Formation Opportunity

June 14 – July 19, 2022  |  6:30 – 8:00 PM

This summer Scripture series, presented by Fr. Ray Clark and co-facilitator Dcn. Brett Mills,  is free and open to anyone interested in learning about Scripture. It will run Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 PM, June 14 through July 19, 2022. These will be held via Zoom, with all sessions recorded. You will be sent Zoom meeting information, to the email you provide below, prior to the first session. You only need to purchase a copy of Stephen Binz book titled, Introduction to the Bible: A Catholic Guide to Studying Scripture, for $10 in Owensboro at St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Books and Gifts at 1020 Halifax Drive Suite 101 or order through a company online. You are also encouraged to have a Catholic study Bible. We recommend Little Rock Catholic Study Bible which is also available through Liturgical Press.

The class will focus on the Catholic understanding of Divine Revelation (how God has revealed himself) and the culture of Jesus as a culture that tells stories.

30 minutes of each class will be spent using Introduction to Scripture:  A Catholic Guide to Understanding Scripture to become familiar with the Bible and the Catholic perspective on Scripture.

This series is recognized by the Diocesan Office of Faith Formation for Continuing Education for 9 hours (3 hours Content, 3 hours Catechist, and 3 hours Pastoral).
