Father Joseph’s Study Sunday Scriptures –
EVERY Monday night in the Library from 6-7pm….Drop by anytime!

 Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom
   Mondays 9:45AM-11:45AM        Room 5/7
Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom shows how Christ’s Kingdom on earth is empowered to carry out his work in the world. The book of Acts shows the Church, enlivened by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing, and restoring outcasts in the same way that Jesus did on earth.

Who Am I to Judge?
   Mondays 7:30PM-9:00PM      Room 5/7
How do we talk about morality in a world that no longer believes in truth? When we’re bombarded with messages of “Be tolerant!” “Don’t judge!” and “Coexist!” many good people feel afraid to say anything is right or wrong anymore. This study program gives us an important key to responding to relativism effectively—a Catholic moral worldview. Learn how Catholic morality is all about love, how making a judgment is not judging a person’s soul, and how, in the words of Pope Francis, “relativism wounds people” and is “the spiritual poverty of our times.”

Wisdom: God’s Vision for Life
   Tuesdays 9:45AM-11:45AM    Room 5/7
     or
   Fridays 9:45AM-11:45AM        Room 5/7
Scripture and the Tradition of the Catholic Church provide an abundance of wisdom, though it can often be challenging to apply it to our lives. In this study, Jeff Cavins and Thomas Smith examine biblical wisdom as it relates to daily life. Drawing on the wisdom literature of the Bible—Proverbs, Wisdom, Sirach, and Ecclesiastes—Wisdom will teach you how to actively seek out sound guidance and increase your sense of peace in navigating life. In everything from friendships to finances, from making decisions to attaining peace of mind, Scripture offers a vision for happiness and well-being. With this program, you will learn how to gather, gain, and grow in wisdom, and you will experience the joy it brings to your life.

Subject: Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance
   Tuesdays 7:30PM-9:00PM      Room 5/7
     or
Thursdays 7:00PM-9:00PM    
Room 5/7
Paul’s letter to the Ephesians reveals many remarkable gifts that we as Christians are given in the Church. This letter tells us about the nature of the Church – as a body, as a household, as a mystery, as a communion, as a bride, and as an army. It shows us the great inheritance that awaits us as sons and daughters, adopted fully into the family of God. It reveals how God’s great love for us can transform our daily lives if we allow it. Ephesians:Discover Your Inheritance is an 8-part Bible study that will enrich your faith, and show you how to live it out.

Subject: Psalms: The School of Prayer
   Thursdays 9:45AM-11:45AM    Room 5/7
An overview and explanation of the Psalms. the Psalms reveal Israel’s response to God’s covenant offer and serve as a model for our response to Him. Indeed, one could say that the historical books tell the “outside” of the story of Israel by giving an historical perspective, while the Psalms tell the “inside” story, which comes from the deeply personal perspective of one who is seeking God. Our communication with God is enhanced by a deeper understanding of the book of Psalms and of the individual psalms that reside in each of our hearts.
