Catholic Scripture Study International
The mission of Catholic Scripture Study International is to bring people closer to Jesus Christ and His Church through in-depth Bible study. This program is for individuals seeking inspiring, in-depth Scripture study that is completely faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church. (Tradition-Scripture-Magisterium) The study commentaries are written by leading Scripture scholars and authors, and each study contains the references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, papal encyclicals, and writings of the early Church Fathers and the saints. More information can be found at www.cssprogram.net.
Classes start in Sept and continue through the school year into spring, most are 25 to 30 weeks in length. Each week the group meets for a 1.5 hour session which includes prayer, introduction, small group discussion of assigned questions (usually 10 each week) and then a 30 min DVD lecture by a Catholic priest.
