Fall 2023: September 20 - November 16
All of us are aware of angels in our Catholic faith tradition. At every Mass, we join with the heavenly choirs of angels in praising God. As children, we learned about our guardian angels, and angels are especially important during the Advent and Christmas seasons. But how familiar are we with what the Bible tells us about angels?
Beginning September 28, the day before the Church celebrates the feast day of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, St. Patrick’s Thursday Morning Scripture Group will take a look at some of the fascinating passages about angels that are found in both the Old and New Testaments. The fall session will run for 8 weeks, ending on November 16.
The Thursday Morning Scripture Group has been meeting at St. Patrick’s for more than 20 years and is led by parishioner Susan Carlson, who holds a Master of Divinity degree. The group’s approach to the Scriptures is to combine study, prayer, reflection, and discussion. The group meets from 9:30 until 11:00 a.m. on Thursday in the O’Gara Parish Activity Center. Please consider joining the group this fall as we explore the topic of angels in the Bible. No previous Bible study experience is necessary – all are welcome!
In addition to the Bible, the group will use a Little Rock Scripture commentary written by Father George Smiga entitled Angels in the Bible. The fee to participate is $15 which covers the cost of the commentary. To register for the fall session, please contact Susan Carlson at SMcCarlson@aol.com by September 13.
