GIVE YOUR SOUL A WORK-OUT IN 2019!

St. John’s is offering a life-changing independent study program to help you read the entire Catholic Bible in 2019. 

In just 15-20 minutes per day, you can read the entire Catholic Bible in one year!  Whether you feel God calling you to dive into His Word or you simply want to read the Bible again, this is a personal plan to help you do just that!


STAY ON TRACK

To help you stay on-track, a reading plan and inspiration will be delivered to your email inbox every Friday.   The email will include videos, reflections, or other information to enhance your understanding of the readings. Join the email list to keep in touch!


THE PLAN

There are a variety of ways to read the Bible in one year. We will be following a reading plan developed by Catholic biblical scholar Dr. Mary Healy.  The link below includes the reading plan on one sheet of paper (front and back) that you can fold and fit into your Bible.
