Bible Study is Back!
This fall we will explore The Bible and the Sacraments, studying the meaning and origin of the Catholic Sacraments We will investigate and discover the deeper mysteries the sacraments contain as illuminated in Sacred Scripture.
Examining the rich relationship between the Old and New Testaments, it reveals the sacraments as more than mere earthly rituals. They are incredible “‘powers that come forth’ from the Body of Christ” (CCC 1116).
These sessions will run for about 11 weeks beginning September 12, 2019. We will meet from 7:30PM to 9:00 PM in Room 1 in the Old School. A donation of $20 is suggested to cover expenses.
If interested or have any questions, fill out the form below, email Deacon George Mais at email@example.com, or call at (516) 931-0056 ext. 140 and leave your name and phone number.
