prizes generously and voluntarily donated by members.

Bible study group meets at 2pm on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each
month. Our aim is to gain a greater knowledge and love of Holy Scripture
through prayerful reflection and meditation on selected passages. We
find that we have a better appreciation of the readings at Sunday Mass
by looking at and discussing them beforehand, especially the themes and
connections between the readings.
