Bible Study Announcement

Faith Formation Catholic Bible Study classes for adults and young adults – All sessions are scheduled on Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9 p.m.,. Each workshop will take three evenings and will cover one book of the Bible. The study will begin with the Book of Judges and, with enough interest, continue through the Book of Revelation. Our guest presenter is the Reverend Timothy P. Schehr, Ph.D., from the Athenaeum of Ohio, Mt. St. Mary Seminary of the West. The Bible is a great and wonderful book which we should all read and study. We should make an effort to understand the true meaning of the Scriptures, and not simply give passages our own interpretation. To avoid this. The cost to participate in each book of the Bible is $35. All sessions will be held in the Bishop Howard Memorial Auditorium, located in the Diocese of Covington Curia, 1125 Madison Ave., Covington. To register online, or for more information, please visit the diocesan website.
