Summer Bible Insitute

Posted on Aug 10, 2014

The annual SUMMER BIBLE INSTITUTE took place July 13-18, 2014. Close to 40 people attended the various sessions throughout the week. The evening Old Testament sessions on the Prophets were led by Carol Dempsey, a Dominican Sister who teaches at Portland University and has written extensively on Old Testament topics. In the mornings Elliott Maloney, a Benedictine Brother and teacher at Saint Vincent Seminary in LaTrobe, Pennsylvania, led us through the letters of St. Paul, using his recently published book as guide.

In addition to great scholarship, with prayerful and thoughtful insights, a vibrant community formed. Along with many regular attendees, we had many first-time visitors to the Oratory – from Florence and Camden, SC as well as Washington, DC, Philadelphia and Seattle! The whole week was a testimony to the power of the Spirit and the Word!
