Scripture Study -- When it comes to studying the Bible, some Catholics can't get enough information and understanding about the Old and New Testaments. Many Catholics have "Bible Insecurity" -- embarrassment for not knowing more and fear sounding "stupid" in a Bible study class. A study group at St. John's is a place where, whatever your Bible background, you'll feel comfortable and your knowledge and faith will grow.
