Parish of St. Mary-Bradford

One Parish - Two Churches


Scripture Group


This group has taken up the invitation of the Diocesan ‘Come and See’

renewal initiative to meet regularly within the parish to share our love for

and understanding of the Word of God. Our bishops and the pope in Rome

have urged all Catholics to read and study the bible. We meet each week in

Lent and Advent, and fortnightly for the rest of the year, to read, reflect on,

and pray about the readings for the following Sunday’s parish Mass. In this

way we look at both Old Testament and New Testament passages. Everyone in the group finds that the Sunday parish mass comes much more alive when we have had time to prepare the readings. Some members of the scripture group are also encouraging each other to read more systematically through the bible. The meetings always end with prayer.
