"Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and inwardly hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever."
One of the best ways to learn about Scripture is with frequent and regular study. In community we learn about our faith, each other and our relationships with God and sacred texts. St Mary's offers three Bible study groups -
