Ways to Celebrate Scripture Sunday

The Bible is a personal gift from God to guide us and Pope Francis has asked all dioceses to designate one Sunday a year as Scripture Sunday. 

October 14/15 is Scripture Sunday 2017 in the Diocese of Owensboro. 

  • Carry your Bibles to Mass (your Protestant friends will wonder what you are up to!). Mark your Bible for the readings of the day and then follow the readings in your Bible during the Liturgy of the Word.

  • Each family will receive a bookmark with Lectio Divina guidelines to help them pray the Scriptures along with a blessing of Bibles at the end of Mass.                        

The Bible is part of our Christian heritage just like the Mass and is one of the ways we encounter Jesus Christ.
