Scripture Study

Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians: Thursday’s, 3-4 p.m. (Jan. 16 – Feb. 6, 2019)

This study continues with St. Paul’s letter to the early Christian community in Galatia. Galatians addresses Paul’s understanding of Christian freedom and justification by faith. He reprimands the Galatians for deserting the Gospel by seeking justification through the rite of circumcision rather than through faith in Christ, who achieved our salvation by his sacrifice on the cross.

Spiritual director Fr. Ignatius Kissel, OSMl, will guide the study, reflection and sharing. Cost is $20 for the class. Registration is required; call 503-254-7371 or email

Our group will meet in the auditorium located in The Grotto administration office. You may bring your own Bible.
