Free online Bible Study

Herewith is a flyer for a Bible study on the oldest Gospel, Mark. The presenter is Father Greg Lozinskyy, pastor of St John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Church (Trumbull, CT; www.stjohntrumbull.org). Father Greg has recently finished his doctorate in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Institute (Rome). The study begins tomorrow night, March 2!

The Church via her pastors and teachers of the faith have strongly encouraged that we take up the study of God’s Word revealed to us in the Bible. Knowing Scripture well –at any age– is a good formation in the faith; it is a matter of salvation. As Saint Jerome said, “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” We understand the word ignorance as being untrained.

This online Bible study on the Gospel of Mark is free. Please register with Father Greg at stjohntrumbull@gmail.com

If you are unable to participate live you can watch at a later time on youtube; Father Greg will give you the link.

Let us help each other keep our focus on Lent.
