Every Catholic Biblical School course includes:



Through engaging lectures filled with both “head knowledge” and “heart knowledge,” expert seminary-level teachers explain the Bible so that participants encounter God and apply God’s Word in their lives as missionary disciples.



In small groups centered on God’s Word, participants gain confidence in speaking about their faith and model accompaniment in spiritual growth.



Participants are accompanied in variety of both communal and individual ways of praying with Scripture from the riches of the Church.
