Contacting our Pastor, Office Manager, and Webmaster

We greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter.

From the Pastor…Fr. McHugh

Due to my own malfunctioning equipment, I was forced to postpone showing some old but well-done VHS tapes that featured Fr. Barone, a pioneer in Scripture in our diocese and a couple of other fine scholars. On October 20 and 27, at the usual 9:00 Thursday morning time, I will offer a comprehensive treatment of the development of the biblical movement from the beginning of the 20th century to the present, highlighting Vatican II’s stance on Scripture. We will look at some of the institutions and Church figures who fostered the biblical movement and others who impeded it. I will look at the rise and decline of biblical studies in different countries and look at which country has the best outlook for the future in this field. I will discuss how censorship and directives not to publish biblical books by unlearned Church authorities led to Scripture scholars leaving the field due to the lack of academic freedom and the lack of Church support in biblical studies.
