A series of 4 talks on A Biblical Journey through the Mass by Brian Purfield
The Mass is the centre of our faith. We celebrate it every day. We know all the responses and all the gestures. But do we know what it all means? In this short course we will take a tour of the liturgy and explore the biblical roots of the words and gestures we experience in the liturgy and reflect on their profound significance. It is hoped that this will help to renew our faith and deepen our love for and devotion to the Eucharist.
Date: 21st May and 26th June 2018
Venue:Vaughan House, 46 Francis Street, SW1P 1QN

What is next?
Bible studies attract people from all walks of life and they all bring different expectations. There are many different ways to study the Bible. One of the ways is to listen to good talks on the Bible. The quality of the speaker is most important in this case. Some parishes go with “one-off” talk and some run a series of talks on the Bible.
The second, and perhaps most common approach is to have a Bible study group when one of the parishioners or individual group leader leads the group. Many different materials can be used. Some of them provide a good explanation of the text to be reflected on and prayed about. Any good Catholic bookshop will have a number of Bible study guides on offer. It is up to the group to decide how and what they would like to do.
