The Word of God is for all of us, beginner and veteran scripture scholar alike. God longs to talk to us through His Word. WOW (Wisdom of the Word) is for those eager to learn more about scripture and the Catholic faith through weekly meetings, small group conversations and yes, even great food.

WOW will be offering two studies this fall, one on Wednesday mornings and one on Wednesday evenings.

Wisdom of the Word Bible Study

What We Believe: The Beauty of the Catholic Faith and Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist

What We Believe answers the questions: What is the Catholic Church all about? What does it mean to be Catholic? What do Catholics actually believe?

The Catholic Church is extraordinary. Founded by Christ himself, the Catholic Church is where we encounter God in his Word, his sacraments, and his saints. The Church faithfully proclaims the fullness of faith, leaving no truth out. It proclaims the fullness of life, leaving no person out. It calls all to repent and to believe in God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the source of all life and salvation. Wherever you may be in your journey, you will be profoundly moved by the beauty and the richness of the Catholic Church.

Presence explores the truth and beauty of Christ's real presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and her members. It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation. Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is the "source and summit" of the Christian life.
