Throughout the year, members of the Immaculate Conception and St. Joseph Parish community gather for discussions designed to help them grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures while deepening their understanding of the riches of our Catholic faith.
Our Current Series
Discover The Old Testament
Journey through the Garden of Eden, the reigns of King David and King Solomon, beautiful poetry and the wisdom of the prophets.
To understand Christianity, an appreciation of the Old Testament is vital. Now, you can explore it in full in our Scripture Study Series, The Old Testament, with one of the leading Old Testament scholars in the country. In this sweeping video-assisted course, Fr. Richard Clifford, S.J., will take you through the Old Testament book-by-book, exploring its fascinating historical and societal milieu, and how it prefigures and lends so much meaning to the New Testament. This is more than a Bible study: it is a profound program that will lead you to discover valuable insights into your own life and faith.
Father Richard J. Clifford, S.J., is a leading scriptural scholar and Professor of Old Testament in the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry. Read more about Fr. Clifford here. "Clifford has a remarkable ability to simplify complex texts, to address readers directly, and to convince them that ancient literature is worth their attention,” says James L. Crenshaw, Professor of Old Testament at Duke University
