Meeting on Zoom
Six Sessions, Fall 2021
Five Sessions, Lent 2022
Join us in discussing the Gospel of Luke on Wednesday evenings, hosted by the Benedictine Peace Center. The short text, The Gospel According to Luke by Father Michael Patella OSB, and the excellent resources of the Little Rock Bible Study will be our guides. Your weekly preparation consists of reading the commentary and spending prayerful time with the study and reflection questions. In session, we will pray, discuss, and watch a supplemental video. The sessions will be facilitated by S. Mary Jo Polak OSB.
The book description for Part I tells us that, “The Gospel of Luke demonstrates the universal nature of Jesus’ mission and the compassion of God. Part One of this study includes Luke 1:1–11:54, taking the reader from the infancy narratives of John the Baptist and Jesus to their births and then to the Galilean ministry of Jesus.”
Pre-registration will be required in September as so you can receive materials to study in advance of our first meeting.

My participation in the Yankton Benedictines’ online study courses (2021 Lenten Retreat, Genesis II and Laudato Si) provided a remarkable giant step forward in my spiritual formation. All class content (assigned readings, open forums, videos and participant exchanges) reinforced God’s presence in my day-to-day life (spiritual, physical, emotional, intelectual). The courses also made me more aware of my accountabilities in relationship with God and humankind. In all three studies, facilitators created a rich learning experience, fostering open discussion, encouragement and support, while challenging the status quo to achieve a higher calling in service to the Creator and Creation. Studying with the Benectine Sisters has become a “must have” in my spiritual life. Looking forward to upcoming classes.
