How to Read the Bible: A Course for Beginners and For Those Who Have Forgotten How!  For many people reading the Bible can be a daunting task.   Where does one begin? How does one make sense of it? “How to Read the Bible” is an 8-week course open to anyone, especially beginners, who would like to discover more about the Bible.

Times and Venues: Ballykisteen Hotel, Tuesdays 7.30-8.45pm, starting 24 October in Parish Centre Cashel, Thursdays 7.30-8.45 pm, starting 26 October, St Patrick’s College Thurles, Tuesdays 7.30-8.45 pm starting 24 October.

Commitment required:  A willingness to participate in all eight sessions and to undertake some reading and light study (up to two hours weekly) between sessions.

Cost:  There is no charge. Each participant will receive the course book and a Christian Community Bible (Catholic Pastoral Edition), the particular bible that will be used throughout the course.

Course Book: Brendan McConvery C.Ss.R. How To Read The Bible: A Manual For Beginners And For Those Who Have Forgotten How, Redemptorists Communications Ireland, 2009.  Fr. Brendan McConvery C.Ss.R., a much respected Irish Biblical Scholar who taught scripture at St. Patrick’s College Maynooth for many years, designed this 80-page book to support  engagement with the Bible. Its simple, user friendly style invites exploration in a non-threatening and accessible way. Through it Fr. Brendan provides the reader with the tools to unearth the richness of both the Old and New Testaments, and even to pray with them. It lends itself nicely to group exploration, supporting course participants in widening their understanding of scripture.

They showed tremendous spirit& heart and really closed a big deficit in second half. We play  Moyglass in our third & final match of this round in Killenaule .   On Wednesday Rang 1 & Rang 2 had their GAA Coaching up in Scoil Ruain. This is a new venture for us and we are very grateful to our local G.A.A. Club for organising this new initiative.

Sincere thanks to David Curran (David Lawlor’s Grandfather) for all his help with the planting last year.
