The Spring session begins on January 3, 2017 and will end on April 4, 2017.
The study will focus on the Apostle Paul’l letters to the Romans and the Galatians.
“Romans is Paul’s masterpiece and is one of the most important books in the New Testament. It is a compendium of teaching on areas such as justification, salvation, atonement, as well as practical components of everyday Christian living. In Galatians, Paul continues and expands his message given to the Romans. The answer to the question, ‘Are you saved?’ becomes clearer as our understanding of justification and sanctification grow. Through this study we learn some basic truths of our faith and how to apply them to our lives.” (CWBS)
Thursday morning study:  Genesis

Genesis explores the great themes of creation, sin, salvation, covenant, and the calling of the Chosen People. The first eleven chapters deal with God and humanity at large; the remaining ones address the special role of the people called to be His very own, i.e.,  Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham and Sarah, Jacob and Joseph.  Talks address these themes plus Creation and Flood theories, the relationship between faith and science, the question of evil, and many others.

General Information about Catholic Way Bible Study

CWBS was formed in 1999 in response to the Holy Father’s call to a new evangelization and to a growing need for Catholic scripture study.

Three basic elements emerged that would prove to be the bedrock of the program:

One – Group Discussion

  • Builds relationships
  • Promotes spiritual growth
  • Encourages participation and fosters community
  • Provides prayer support

Two – Lecture

  • Promotes deeper understanding of the truth of Scripture
  • Deepens one’s personal relationship with God
  • Fosters growth in holiness

Three – Praise & Worship

  • Corporate and personal worship are deepened
  • Encourages daily Mass attendance and Eucharistic Adoration

This program has changed many lives by deepening faith, increasing understanding of God’s word, and unifying the community.

The four goals of evangelism, catechesis, formation, and discipleship fostered by the Study have yielded amazing fruit in our local area, leading to the spreading of CWBS well beyond the boundaries of our home diocese of Lexington, Kentucky.
