Bible Study Classes


Our mission is to sustain a successful Bible Study Program at St. Anthony Church through spiritual growth, supportive faith community, evangelization, and sharing the love of Christ by serving others.

Our Goals

  • Pursue a deeper relationship with God through Bible Study
  • Strengthen and nourish our spiritual journeys through Prayer and Bible Study
  • Serve God and our neighbor through mutual support of a community of believers

Why is Scripture study important?

  • You will learn to relate scripture to your personal life of faith
  • You will learn to read scripture in its historical context and understand the development of our church
  • You will participate in lively discussions and share your experience in the faith, and you will do this in the company of other Catholics who share your journey

Who can participate?

  • Anyone with an interest in expanding or sharing their knowledge of the scriptures
  • There are no prerequisites
  • Those who have never read the Bible are as welcome as those who have done some previous study


  • Each meeting will begin with a short prayer followed by a video on the evening’s readings, Small Group discussion, and a closing prayer.
  • A small fee is charged to cover the cost of materials (each participant supplies his or her own Bible)
