unlocking the mystery PHOTOUnlocking the Mystery of the Bible (8 sessions)

Many people want to read the Bible because they know it is God’s Word but give up because it is so complicated. This study helps you to get the “big picture” of the Bible by showing how fourteen narrative books of the Bible tell the complete story from Adam and Eve to Christ and the Church. In this video-based study, presenter Jeff Cavins will show you how to read the Bible so that you can actually understand it. Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible will help you discover the story of salvation history and understand how you fit into God’s plan. In person: Fr. Murphy Room, 8 Sundays (Beginning October 4) at 10:30 am. Cost: $20 Register by 10/2/20

Bishop Robert Barron’s THE MASS (6 Sessions)

Walk through the Liturgy with Bishop Barron and be transformed through insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ. See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and, most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist. 6 beautiful and engaging videos and discussion will help you understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in the source and summit of the Christian life.
