First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community - Sign Up

Submissions for this form are closed.


You are invited to join our new Great Adventures Bible Study program, First Corinthians:The Church and the Christian Community featuring Tim Gray—with supplemental information and explanation provided by Fr. Allen Moran, O.P.

In this eleven-session study, we will discover how the conflicts of the early Christians in Corinth are in many ways similar to our struggles today as Christians. With divisions, immorality, persecution, and other trials of the faithful, the message of St. Paul to the Corinthians is a much-needed message for our own times.

First Corinthians explores the key elements that the apostle Paul introduced to a new and growing Church. St. Paul taught the Corinthians about the nature of grace and the Church as the Body of Christ. In addition, he introduced the Corinthian Christians to the most powerful gift of all, the Eucharist, which, along with Christian virtue, leads to a life of joy.

The study sessions will be held in The Holy Grill (school cafeteria) from 9:00-11:00 a.m. on the following Saturday mornings:

  • October 1 (Introductory Session),
  • October 29,
  • November 5,
  • November 19,
  • December 3,
  • December 17,
  • January 7,
  • January 21,
  • February 4,
  • February 18,
  • March 4.

A FIRST CORINTHIANS study set, which includes both study questions and responses, is available from Ascension Press. As Ascension Press has changed their policy and will no longer ship these to bookstores, we can no longer make them available through The Catholic Shop nor offer a discount as we have in the past. Therefore, anyone who wants a study set will have to order it directly from Ascension Press. You may order by calling 1-800-376-0520 or online at http://shop.ascensionpress.com/products/first-corinthians-the-church- and-the-christian-community-study-set-1. The cost is $23.95 plus shipping. Please note that the study set is not required.

Concerned you may not be able to attend every study? Not to worry. A lending library CD may be
borrowed from the parish office to bring you up to date.
