Scripture Study

Men’s Bible Study

Our parish has a very active group of men, who for more than 14 years, have met each Saturday at 7:30AM in a “round table” format to  discuss the Sunday scripture readings. It is very informal and attended by some scholarly and not-so-scholarly folks. It’s rewarding and even some fun. Bring your coffee and come on over to St. Thomas More parish hall, all men are welcome!

Summer Bible Study

Summer Bible Study will be held on Tuesday mornings beginning on July 9, 2019 and will run for 8 weeks, from 9:30-11AM in the parish hall at St. Thomas More Church. For more information, contact Maryann Knag at 203-213-4809 or mmknag@aol.com.
