This year we are offering two Bible Study options.
Bible Study Option 1: The Bible Timeline: The Story of Salvation
Reading the Bible should bring us closer to Christ, but understanding it is often difficult. The good news is that you can understand the Bible, and The Bible Timeline, a twenty-four-part Bible study, makes it easy.
St. Mary’s Cathedral will offer The Bible Timeline led by parishioner Anne Marie Wise, on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8PM beginning September 21, 2022 in St. Joseph’s Hall. Participants will meet every week to view an engaging video presentation followed by a time of lively group discussion and fellowship. To register, please contact Brigid Young at [email protected] or 503.770.4791.
Bible Study Option 2: Matthew: The King and His Kingdom
The book of Matthew brings the history of Christ to life. We see Jesus as the awaited Messiah who fulfills the promises and prophecies of the Old Testament, establishes the New Law, and inaugurates the kingdom of heaven. Matthew: The King and His Kingdom, a twenty-four-part Bible study, explores how Jesus is challenging and empowering us to a new level of holiness and shows how we must be thoroughly immersed in the kingdom of heaven on earth, the Church, to live it.
St. Mary’s Cathedral will also offer Matthew: The King and His Kingdom on Wednesday afternoons from 1-2:30PM beginning September 21, 2022 in St. Joseph’s Hall. Participants will meet every week to view an engaging video presentation followed by a time of lively group discussion and fellowship. To register, please contact Brigid Young at [email protected] or 503.770.4791.
