Bible Study: Parables of the Kingdom
Some of the most memorable teachings of Jesus were delivered as parables and are found in the Gospels. This study will acquaint participants the important characteristics of a parable, and how Jesus used familiar images and common experiences to challenge audiences to see things in a new way. We will look at parables found in Mark's Gospel, where the disciples are a privileged audience to Jesus' private explanations of the parables, and then how Matthew uses the same parables but gives them a slightly different twist.
Classes will meet for 6 sessions on Mondays, either 9AM or 7PM.
January 13, 20, 27
February 3, 17, 24
(no class on Feb 10th – Parish Mission)
Please contact Sandy Staton to register at , or 317-842-6778, ext 240.
The Creed: The Faith Professed, Part 2
Do you want to learn more about the Catholic faith? Please join us for
“The Creed: The Faith Professed”, a 6-week series that will continue
an exploration of what we believe. Using the United States Catholic
Catechism for Adults, sessions will include a biographical sketch of an
American saint or other outstanding Catholic, a teaching rooted in the
Catechism, the relationship between Catholic teaching and our U.S.
culture, questions for discussion, and meditation and prayer.
This is a continuation of the Fall 2013 study, but you do not have to
have attended Part 1 to be included. Everyone is welcome!
Sessions are offered Thursdays at 7PM beginning April 24th
in the Merton Room:
May 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
