Wednesday Night Bible Study Class

6:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Saint Joseph's Hall - 145 West 46th Street

The Wednesday Night Bible Study Class meets every Wednesday at 6:30 PM in Saint Joseph's Hall.  This year we will be reading Saint Paul's Letter to the Romans.

The class will be led by Father James Ross Smith. No prerequisites are necessary, and drop-ins to the class are welcome.

The Wednesday Night Bible Study Class will not meet on Wednesday, May 17, when Father Smith is out of town. The class will not meet on May 24, the Eve of Ascension Day, nor on May 31, the Feast of the Visitation. Evening services will replace the class on those days. Class resumes on Wednesday, June 7.

No homework is required, but if you would like to receive a copy of a short commentary on the letter, please email The Rev. James Ross Smith.
