Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish, Belmont, Michigan

From Our Pastor

I want to introduce you to an adult discipleship school called the Catholic Biblical School of Michigan.  Some of the faculty and participants will be coming to share with you after the Masses next weekend – June 22 & 23 – and to invite you to go to their Information Nights at St. Thomas the Apostle parish, the same place as their new class / cohort starting this Fall.

CBSM aims at sustained encounter, reading, and understanding the Word of God.  It involves a four-year study of the entire Bible, doing so under the guidance of master-trained instructors.  The Bible is transformative for us; in it, God invites us to share in His very life, to come to know the plan He has been carrying out since the beginning.  By closely reading Scripture, we realize how God acts in history and in the lives of His people, and so learn to discover His presence in our own story and in our daily lives.  So, applying the story, lessons, and beauty of Scripture, from the heart of the Tradition, is a central component of the Catholic Biblical School.

If you’ve felt like you really want to read and understand the Bible, or are looking for a deeper relationship with Him, or want to know how He acts in our lives and in the world, or are just interested in learning more, I want to invite you to consider CBSM and to go to one of their Information Nights (listed in the brochures they will be handing out and available on their website: cbsmich.org).
