Scriptures serve as the foundation for Catholic doctrine and
teachings. The program is offered every Tuesday morning

Hall in the basement of the Church; and again on Tuesday
evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 P.M. in the same location. Classes
will be offered from Tuesday, Sept. 11 until Tuesday, May 14.
The series will consist of lectures and discussions led by Bob
Ward (MA in Theology with concentration on Sacred Scriptures
from Notre Dame Graduate School of Christendom College).
The course is also related to the Great Adventure: A Journey
Through the Bible presented by Jeff Cavins on EWTN. No
prerequisites or prior study required. All are welcome. Please
bring your Bible. For further information please call Bob Ward
