Study the Bible in Four "Sept-to-May" Classes

The Bible Course: Year A

Covenant Year (Yr. A)

Salvation History from Genesis to 2 Maccabees

In Created for Covenant, we begin our journey through the Bible by tracing the story of Israel–the People of God–through the historical books of the Old Testament, from Genesis to 2 Maccabees.

Jesus’ earthly ministry flowed forth from this Old Testament context, from the lived and powerfully remembered history of Israel and God’s plan for creation. Through these books we discover that we too are created for covenant. The Old Testament is not merely history, but indeed our story, our family. 

Happening 2024-25 at:

  • St. Francis Ann Arbor (Mondays 7-9 pm),
  • Our Lady of Good Counsel (Wednesdays 9:30-11:30 am)
  • and Fully-Online.

The Bible Course: Year B

Encounter Year (Yr. B)

The Synoptic Gospels, Acts and the Letters of Paul

Experience the transformative event of the Good News of Jesus Christ through the Gospels of Mark, Matthew, and Luke, Acts of the Apostles, Paul’s Letters, and the Letter to the Hebrews. For many, the Gospels are at first familiar–from Mass, prayer, or even memories of childhood storybooks. Yet, as we encounter these inspired texts anew, we encounter Jesus anew, as one participant reflected, “a new amazement and appreciation!” Or, as another explained:

“I’ve heard the parables many times before, but this year they took on new meaning–they contain so much more than I realized! I feel closer to God and realize more all that He has given to us in the Bible, how He loves us and cares for us.”

As we understand more Jesus’s earthly ministry and the response of the early Church, we too are more and more filled by the Holy Spirit and fueled for our own lives of witness in our world today.

In Called to Return to Love, we encounter the major and minor Prophets of the Old Testament, as well as the books of Tobit, Judith, and Esther. In these inspired works, the Lord calls us to grow in holiness, worshiping while living in right relationship with both God and neighbor.

Participants remark how the Prophets illuminate the life and ministry of Jesus:

“they show us how God brings about continual victories that lead to deeper personal conversion.”
