The Wednesday morning Bible study group will begin began a 25-week study entitled “A Scriptural Study of Angels”. on Wednesday, January 8th. This study, produced by Catholic Scripture Studies International, offers extensive printed material by Mike Aquilina and Dr. Richard Bulzacchelli, STD and DVD lectures by Jesuit Father Mitch Pacwa.
In contrast to the sometimes overly sentimentalized popular understanding of angels, this course will draw on Scripture, the highly developed thought of St. Thomas Aquinas, Blessed John Paul II’s 1986 catechetical series on the angels, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. In our investigation of these powerful spiritual creatures whose name conveys their vocation as messengers of God, we will come to understand a further aspect of our belief in God’s creation of “the visible and the invisible.”
The program will involve weekly preparation of reading in both the Bible and a workbook, DVD lectures and group discussion. The group meets weekly on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 until 11:30. For more information on this study group contact Madonna Muscarello at email@example.com.
