  • Reading the Bible

    Recently, the parishioners of St. Mary Cathedral started to read the bible together. It is not too late for you to start. We will take two years to read the entire bible.
    Reading the bible together is a movement of the Lord in our parish. Be sure to call upon God to help you through this process. Start each reading with a little prayer and ask God to complete His work in you. Before you know it, you will be turning page after page and discovering the world of the bible that He has always held out for you.
    As long as you try, you can’t get it wrong. We are reading God’s word and that in and of itself will impact each of us on a variety of levels. The weekly bulletin has the schedule readings for last week, the current week and the readings for next week. The document below identifies all the readings by week for the entire two years.
