Psalms Bible Study: Begins Sep 14/15

Eight-week Bible study beginning Wednesday, September 14th at 7:00 pm or Thursday, September 15th at 9:30 am



The Holy Spirit inspired them. Israel sang them. Christ himself portrayed them, as did our Blessed Mother. At the heart of the Bible are the psalms, prayers from God that help us to pray. In Psalms: The School of Prayer, discover how these sacred hymns become our heartfelt response to God’s loving and wondrous deeds.

Learn how to meditate fruitfully on the captivating words of the psalms using lectio divina, and study the many ways the psalms foretell the life and mission of Jesus.


Weekly Study Sequence: Wednesday evenings and Thursday mornings home preparation - Read the Bible and answer the homework questions in the Study Set, which are a way to learn from within the heart of the Church.

Small Group Discussion: Small group discussion begins each class session. Participants share what they have learned and glean from others’ insights to get a fuller understanding of the passages they have read, followed with answers provided to the Study Set questions as an aid.

Video Lecture: Follows discussion and presents a Catholic perspective of the readings.
