Bible Study

Due to the current medical crises, bible study sessions have been cancelled until further notice.


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 on March 5 – April 2, 2020 in the parish hall at 9:30 am the Thursday morning Bible Study will begin a short Lenten study from Ascension Press:  No Greater Love Filmed on location in the Holy Land, No Greater Love is a five-part video series and full-length book that reveals Christ’s amazing love for us. Best-selling author Edward Sri guides you through the last hours of Christ's life in this biblical pilgrimage.  While taking this study or reading this book, you will walk step-by-step with Jesus from the Garden of Gethsemane to the Mount of Calvary.  Every step of the way, biblical experts reveal how Old Testament prophecies, messianic expectations, biblical symbolism, and historical context shed light on the mystery of Christ's suffering and death.  With these insights, Catholics can come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of God’s immeasurable and unconditional love.  Questions, please contact Margaret Harder:  [email protected]
