Lectio - Philippians
An Augustine Institute Study led by Deacon Mike Bickerstaff (Begins February 6, 2018)
Tuesday Mornings from 10 to 12 Noon in McNamee Hall
Towards the end of his life, under arrest and awaiting trial in Rome, Saint Paul writes a short but powerful letter to the Philippians. Paul’s affection for the Christian community at Philippi is apparent from his opening words. The Philippians were not only Paul’s sons and daughters in the Faith but also his partners in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
At the heart of this letter is Paul’s eloquent hymn of Christ’s total gift of self, the model for Paul’s life. With his words and the example of his life, Paul exhorts the Philippians to have the mind of Christ, to live a life worthy of the Gospel, and, by God’s grace, to gain Christ.
In six sessions, Dr. Tim Gray combines insight and practical guidance using the lectio divina disciplines to make the Scriptures come alive in Philippians: Life in Christ.
Advance Registration is not required. Simply come to the sessions and let Deacon Mike know you are there on class day.
We have ample copies of the study workbook available at class for $9 each. Checks should be made out to St. Peter Chanel. If paying in cash, please bring exact change.

Wednesday Evenings from 7 to 8:30 pmin Classroom 1.
By Jeff Cavins and Thomas Smith - Scripture and the Tradition of the Catholic Church provide an abundance of wisdom, though it can often be challenging to apply it to our lives.

Drawing on the wisdom literature of the Bible—Proverbs, Wisdom, Sirach, and Ecclesiastes—Wisdom will teach you how to actively seek out sound guidance and increase your sense of peace in navigating life. In everything from friendships to finances, from making decisions to attaining peace of mind, Scripture offers a vision for happiness and well-being.
With this program, you will learn how to gather, gain, and grow in wisdom, and you will experience the joy it brings to your life:
