Scripture Summer School 2024:
Praying the Word

In preparation for the 2025 Jubilee Year 'Pilgrims of Hope', 2024 has been designated a Year of Prayer by Pope Francis. For our Summer Scripture School this year, we explore some of the examples of prayer found in the Bible. The course will take place online, and in-person in Maynooth.

Easter 2024:
Stories of Hope

"Salvation" – you've heard it mentioned in the Scriptures, at Mass, and in prayers. But what is it all really about? While there can be no one, simple "answer" to that question, the Bible does provide us with many images and ideas about what "being saved" is all about, and why it matters.
