Bible Study

Saint Jude's Bible Studies promote an appreciation of reading the Bible and understanding how Bible readings can be applied to our daily life. Everyone is welcome, wherever you are on your spiritual journey.  Bible Study classes have no prerequisites. The Bible has been a powerful influence in the lives of countless people. Every Bible Story is a metaphor for the experiences of God we have all had and will have in our lives. St Jude’s offers four adult Bible Study classes. Details of our Bible Study classes are presented in the church bulletin.  A short description of each class presented below:

Thursday Morning Bible Study: Beginning March 8 at 9:30 a.m. the Thursday morning Bible study will use the Ascension Press new program  Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism.  This study is an apologetic approach to sharing the Catholic Faith.  While it is designed as a faith-sharing Scripture study, you will also gain an understanding of some of the most questioned Catholic teachings. Fulfilled will reignite your love of Scripture and help you share and defend the Catholic Faith with the Word of God.  Contact with questions.

Thursday Evenings During Lent, beginning February 22nd - Fr. Slawomir Szkredka, a popular Scripture professor from St. John’s Seminary, will lead a 5 week study:  Possible Impossibility?  Following Jesus in the Gospel of Mark  Beginning on February 22 from 7:30 – 9 p.m. in our parish hall.  If you have never taken a Scripture study, this is a perfect time to start!  Take a look at the University Series Course guide for more details or contact
