Advent 2023: Stories of Hope

The theme of this year's Advent course is "hope." Each speaker will give two presentations on hope in the Book of Esther (Jessie), the Letter to the Romans (Kieran), and the Gospel of Mark (Seán). There will also be a live Q&A session and a meditation session over Zoom.

Messenger Press: Hearers of the Word Offer

Following the Scripture Summer School, Messenger Press is running a special offer on Kieran O'Mahony's Hearers of the Word book series which explores the readings of the liturgical year and offers reflections to help readers engage more deeply with the texts.

What Each Course Involves

Each course features a number of presentations, all of which are made available on the date the course goes live and are to be enjoyed at your own pace. Notes for each presentation are provided, sometimes with additional resources.

In addition to the presentations, each course also features live Zoom webinars which are recorded* and made available should you be unable to attend. These webinars are either a panel discussion wherein participants may type questions to the presenters, or meditation webinars where the presenters offer a guided reading of biblical texts through prayer and music.

* Note that neither video nor audio from the participants are recorded, only the presenters.
