Looking for a Catholic Bible Study Group?

Steve Ray just posted a way to find Catholic Scripture Study in your area.

The Study Groups will use guides developed by Steve Ray and a group of carefully chosen priests, authors and editors who stay true to the Magisterium.

From Catholic Scripture Study's website:

CSS is an organization committed to helping Catholics deepen their understanding and love of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. We are dedicated to producing Catholic study materials that are always faithful to the teachings of the Holy Catholic Church. Our studies incorporate Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and Magisterial Teaching. This is because, as Catholics, we know that God has given us three gifts so that we may know Him and His plan for us. These gifts are Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, which together, make up a single deposit of the Word of God, and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church which listens devotedly, guards with dedication and interprets faithfully God's Word.

Check it out to discover if a parish near you already has a study group. If not, why not start one?

This is just a fantastic find! When I left the Catholic church at age 20, one of the major reasons was because there wasn't a Bible study group available. I was starting to ask deeper questions about my faith but at the time, felt there were few places I could go for answers.

Scripture study shouldn't stop after high school or college. I know I'm going to definitely be checking into Steve Ray's series which explores the documents of Vatican II. Sounds fascinating!

Other good Scripture/Faith studies can be found at Maryvale in Birmingham:
And http://www.catholic-bible-school.org/index.html for the Catholic Bible Study School in West Sussex - both do correspondence courses and also an American group just for women:
Women of Grace at http://www.womenofgrace.com/ who do a study group for women if anyone wants to start up a group.
