Every Thursday you are invited to gather in the Parish Center for a Scripture study group. Connie May, a well known pastoral minister and scripture teacher, has led scripture study groups for over 33 years. Connie is going to provide this new ministry for us at St. Ludmila. Each week she will offer information on our website and facilitate the Thursday study groups. Connie's only rules are: bring your favorite Bible and come when you can. Times are 3:30 - 5:00 pm and 6:30 - 8:00 pm.
DISCUSSION QUESTION:Jesus asked John and now asks us what we are looking for in God’s Messiah. How do you answer this question this year?
