Scripture Offerings

We will hold our next Scripture session on October 26th at 9:00 AM. I will examine the different viewpoints on Purgatory; those of Catholics and other denominations, some of whom reject Purgatory. Catholics are required to believe in Purgatory, but we have a choice of accepting Purgatory as a place or process. I also will treat when belief in Purgatory began and what are the reasons for such a belief. For those who cannot attend our Scripture sessions, at least one or two of my Scripture presentations are always on YouTube. Just type in “Father Connell McHugh Biblical Narratives” on your computer to reach the site. Biblical presentations are divided into half-hour segments even though my sessions are each one hour long. On a particular topic, they are labeled Parts I and II.
