Winter-Spring 2019:  February 28 – May 23


Samuel, Saul, and David:

Stories from the Books of Samuel


St. Patrick’s Thursday Morning Scripture Group, led by parishioner Susan Carlson, will read stories from the First and Second Books of Samuel during the session that will begin on February 28 and conclude on May 23.  The Books of Samuel are part of the Old Testament’s history of the Israelites living in the promised land and tell the story of the rise of the monarchy in Israel.  These books contain some of the most famous stories in all the Bible, but many of us last read these stories in condensed form when we were children. It is time to revisit them!


The Thursday Morning Scripture Group’s approach to the Scriptures is to combine study, prayer, reflection and discussion.  In addition to the Bible, the group will use a commentary by Father Feidhlimidh T. Magennis, which is part of the New Collegeville Bible Commentary series.  The group is co-ed and meets from 9:30 until 11:00 a.m. on Thursday in the O’Gara Parish Activity Center.  


The fee for the Winter-Spring 2019 Session is $15 and covers the cost of the commentary. To register or to obtain more information, please contact Susan Carlson at or 847-295-9714.  No previous Bible study experience is necessary – all are welcome!
