Ed14mayIn our tradition, people can sometimes maintain a distance from the Bible because they are unsure of how it might be relevant in the ever-changing world we live in, or simply find the Scriptures too large and daunting to approach by oneself. Therefore, the focus of this year's Scripture Summer School is Unlocking the Bible: Keys for Understanding Today. This course will aim to offer keys with which to understand, read, and interpret the Bible for life, for change, for liberation, for personal prayer, and for discipleship.

The final day of the course will also feature a Lectio Divina session led by Professor Seamus O'Connell, and an in-person launch of the Tarsus Scripture School by Archbishop Dermot Farrell.

Course Structure

The course this year will take place in-person, but also be available online via live-streaming. Each session will also be recorded and made available afterwards in a similar way to past online courses. For those who plan to come to Maynooth, there will be the option to attend daily Eucharist, and there will be time each day for you to study, reflect, or simply explore the beautiful campus grounds and surrounding town. If you require accommodation, there are options on campus - details are found further below.
