2024 Lenten Study Groups

Please join us this Lent as we study “The Bible and the Mass” with Dr. Scott Hahn in his 10-part series “Parousia”. Classes will be twice a week—you can choose Tuesday evenings or Thursday mornings. The first sessions will be February 20 at 6:30 PM in the Cafeteria and February 22 at 8:30 AM in Meeting Rooms 1 & 2. Please call  or email Julie at the parish office (763-441-1483; to sign up. A sample of the study guide will be available to allow participants to review it and decide whether they would like to order one.

About the study:

Where do we find the Mass in the Bible? What is the relationship between the two? In ten beautifully produced lessons, “Parousia: The Bible and the Mass” answers these questions and more. In this video Bible study from the St. Paul Center, discover why the liturgy is a major theme that runs through the entire Bible, from Genesis to the Book of Revelation. We will not only look to the Law, the Prophets, and life and teachings of Jesus, we’ll also lean on the Doctors of the Church to enhance our understanding of the Mass. We’ll see how the New Testament is concealed in the Old, the Old is revealed in the New, and why both point directly to the Mass, the sign of the New Covenant. Supplemental readings come from Sacred Scripture, The Catechism of the Catholic Church, and four of Scott Hahn’s books on which the study is based: The Lamb’s Supper, Consuming the Word, The Fourth Cup, and Letter and Spirit: From Written Text to Living Word in the Liturgy.
