From July 14-19, The Oratory Center for Spirituality held the 31st annual Summer Bible Institute in the Pope John Center for some forty participants.

Dr. Laura Manzo of the University of St. Thomas in Houston which includes St. Mary’s Seminary-where some of our priests attended-led the five evening sessions on the Book of Psalms. She cover the Psalter somewhat thematically and addressed a number of psalms , often in pairs, specifically. Dr. Manzo was well rweceived by the enthusiastic group.

Father Kevin O’Brien, a pastor in the Diocese of Richmond, gave an animated and comprehensive treatment in the Monday to Friday morning sessions on the Book of Revelation., his doctoral work at Union Theological Seminary in Richmond. Fr. O’Brien made the difficult and complex final New Testament book come alive in his interactive presentation. He was likewise much appreciated and acclaimed. His talks will be available on CD from St. Paul Publications in Canfield, OH.
