“Your Word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path.”
— Psalm 119:105
Our adult enrichment program features weekly Bible Study. One of the most effective ways to study the Bible is as a group, along with prayer and personal reflection. The weekly two-hour session includes prayer, questions, group sharing, and small group discussion. Participants learn what a particular passage says, understand what it means, and reflect on its relevance 2,000 years later. Facilitators are our own parishioners, who are graduates of the Catholic Bible Study Institute of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, a three-year curriculum at Loyola Marymount University.
No previous experience is required, although you do need to bring your bible each week. Each participant receives a Little Rock Scripture Series Study Guide and New Collegeville Bible Commentary. (There is a nominal materials fee.) During the week participants read assigned chapters of scripture and the corresponding pages of the Commentary, and answer the study questions for each lesson in preparation for the weekly sessions.
