Women’s Scripture Study
This eight-part study provides the easiest way to understand the Bible. Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible makes the complex simple. It helps you uncover the story woven throughout Scripture so that you can get the “big picture” of the Bible and understand what it is all about. The Bible is a story about the Father’s unfailing love for you—a love that you are now called to share with others. In this engaging journey through the Bible, you will be able to make sense of the Bible, discover the remarkable connections between the Old and New Testaments, see how the sacraments, the Church, and our entire Catholic Faith are rooted in Scripture…and much more!
How does it work?
This is an 8-part study taking place during the summer of 2016. Participants meet weekly to pray, share the fruits of their study at home, read the Word of God, and watch Jeff Cavin’s exciting video lectures. Throughout the week the lesson keeps one engaged in Scripture at home, and on Tuesday morning the discussion and faith-sharing help the participants grow more fully into the Body of Christ.
When: Tuesdays, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, starting June 7, 2016
Or, Tuesdays, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm, starting June 7, 2016
NOTE: Both the morning and evening sessions are co-ed, just for the summer. So bring your husband, if he can make it!
Where: Conference Center

Journey Through Scripture is the St. Paul Center’s dynamic Bible study program designed to help ordinary Catholics grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures while deepening their understanding of the riches of our faith. Distinctively Catholic, Journey Through Scripture reads the Bible from the heart of the Church, engaging both the Old and New Testaments and how they work together. It’s grounded in history, yet actively engages topics faced by today’s Catholic. More than just an ordinary Bible study, it’s biblical catechesis.
The Bible and the Virgin Mary is a dynamic twelve-part video series that beautifully explains the Catholic truths about Our Lady showing how she has been a part of God’s plan to bring salvation to the world since the beginning of time. In addition to explanation of dogmas, answers to common objections, and demonstration of Mary’s presence in the Old and New Testaments, this study discusses Church-approved Marian apparitions that play an important role in Catholic Tradition. It’s sure to help Catholics and non-Catholics alike grow in an understanding and appreciation of the Mother of God.
