[Note: if there are any missing please bring these to our attention by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org ]:
“Heroes and Heroines of the Bible” – This 8-week bible study program is a “parish-level” program and so is for people of faith at “beginner” or “intermediate” level of biblical knowledge but will be rewarding for anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of the bible in a relaxed atmosphere. The course seeks to remove the fear-factor of opening the bible and offers some simple pointers in how to become aware of some of the basic themes that recur throughout the bible, helping us to make reading the bible an enjoyable and enriching experience.
Course Director: Fr Eamon Roche, CC Midleton.
The 8 Heroes/Heroines (and the biblical themes associated with each) are:
– Joseph, Son of Jacob (Forgiveness)
– Moses (Worship and Right-Living)
– Ruth (Redemption)
– David (Kingdom)
– Jonah (Conversion and Mission)
– Esther (Salvation)
– Tobit (Suffering, Prayer, Marriage Covenant)
– Daniel (Judgment)
Each session will show how each Old Testament hero and heroine points forward to the coming of the Saviour, Jesus Christ, and the establishment of His Church.

Time and Dates: Mondays on the following dates: Oct 23, Nov 6, Nov 13, Nov 20, Nov 27, Dec 4, Dec 11, Dec 18th (note there is a gap of a forthnight between the 1st and 2nd sessions but after that the classes run weekly). 7.30pm -9pm each session.
