Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother (continued from Fall 2016 session)
(Wednesday, 10:30am — January 4, 11, 18, 25)

This course will place you in the midst of the powerful drama of her earthly life. You will learn how her words in our lives today draw us ever closer to her Divine Son.

Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy
(Tuesdays, 10:00am)

February 1 — The Woman at the Well: Have you ever felt there is no way God could love you? This class focuses not just on the story of Jesus’ mercy and forgiveness, but on the powerful symbol of God’s love for sinners.
February 8 — Jesus the Bridegroom: Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? The Bible never uses the expression “personal relationship” but uses the analogy of the Bridegroom for his Bride. Why? Is Jesus that intimate with His Church?
February 15 — Jewish Roots of Divine Mercy: At the very heart of Jesus’ mission and message was something we often overlook: the message of mercy. “I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” (Matt 12:7); but what does this mean? Come and see.
February 22 — Indulgences granted through Divine Mercy will be explored.

Sacraments of the Catholic Church

The Catholic Books of the Bible
(Tuesday, May 2, 9, 16, 23-10:30am)

Sometimes referred to as the Deuterocanonical Books, which are not included in the Hebrew Scriptures and the Protestant Bible. Why are they called Catholic? Why are they in Catholic Bibles and not Protestant, Orthodox and Jewish Scriptures? What do they contain, and how useful is it to us.
