I’m not leading. We take turns facilitating. Our readings are weekly studies to interpret our lives in Christian action based on the Gospels, Old Testament, and the Acts and Letters, and the teachings of our Tradition, which of course, predates the Canon that the Catholic Church compiled.

The Gospels are deep, deep, deep in meaning and symbolism.

There is always something new that comes from the Holy Spirit as He guides our group.

BTW, there are 4 Action groups, RICA, and a formal Bible study at our parish besides the regular Catachesis of the youngsters and their families.

It is a matter of choosing what treasure from the massive treasure chest of the Church you want to study or learn.

**There is always something new that comes from the Holy Spirit as He guides our group.**

I too, am always learning something that opens up.

IN one Scripture study — we have two groups.

In another women’s group — they have two groups.

RCIA is ongoing

The Men’s Group also has a Scripture Study group.

During Lent we have about six groups that look at the upcoming Sunday Readings during Lent. It’s a way to get people to a formal Scripture Study — sort of a first step.

Our pastor also leads a weekly Scripture Study when he is able.......that one — I never miss unless I am out of town! He is a very good teacher.
