Each of us are at a different place on the journey of faith. What's important is that we're on the journey together and we challenge each other to keep taking the next step forward. Are you willing to go deeper?

FAITH/BIBLE STUDIES:

Our Faith/Bible Studies provide an opportunity to discuss and explore God’s Word, the history and richness of our faith, and current issues in the light of our faith. The Bible Studies often follow a 6 - 8 week format at St. Mary's. During the pandemic some of the Studies were held via Zoom. Everyone is welcome to participate. You may come for all of the sessions; or just the ones that work for you!
