Men, do you attend weekend mass only to have it fly by with little understanding of the depth, or a connection with, the readings ?

St Peter Square Men’s Scripture Study, begun by Holy Spirit and St. Joseph Parish lay seminary students, seeks to help you explore in advance the depths of the weekend Mass readings through study and fellowship with other like-minded men.

“The many allusions to the Old Testament Scriptures, found in the New Testament, suggest that communal reading and explanation of Scripture was far more characteristic of the life of the early Church than it is of the Church today.” (Biblical Orientation for the N.E., P. Williamson and  M Healy, p 24)
