Lenten Bible Studies
**4 Week Adult Bible Study on Exodus Mon. evenings @ 6:30pm during the month of March at the Ed Center.
**A Biblical Walk through the Mass Study
This study takes you on a Scriptural tour through the prayers, hymns and rituals of the liturgy. Practically every part of the Mass finds its inspiration from Scripture. Therefore, the more we understand the biblical background to the Kyrie, the Gloria and other prayers in the Mass, the more we will be able to enter into all that we say and do in the Mass.
This study moves from studying particular books and sections of the Bible to studying the Scriptural roots of the liturgy. After providing a general overview of the Mass, (based on the new translation that begins the first Sunday of Advent 2011). This study devotes a lesson to each of the major sections of the Mass, (i.e., the Introductory Rites, The Liturgy of the Word, the Liturgy of the Eucharist and the Concluding Rites). Readings from the Bible and Catechism of the Catholic Church draw you into the meaning and background of the prayers and other elements of the Mass.
In this 5 week study participants begin with home preparation; reading a portion of the book and certain prayers of the Mass before delving into the Scriptures answering questions in the workbook. Class time pairs group discussion and a 30 minutes DVD) talk that reviews and explains the material and goes deeper into the meaning of the Mass for us.
Sessions: Tues. evenings starting Feb 28th, 6:30pm at the St. John’s.
$22 includes book, A Biblical Walk Through the Mass by Edward Sri, and study/workbook and DVD presentations.
