Scripture from ScratchThe Year of the Word: the Gospel of Saint Matthew
with Sister Anne Walsh OP
Selected Thursdays 7.30—9.00 pm (refreshments from 7.00 pm)
Suggested donation £5 per session
These five sessions on Matthew’s Gospel invite us to open ourselves to the Scriptures as we journey in preparation for Lent and the celebration of Easter.
St Matthew’s Gospel helps us to continue to deepen our faith; our understanding of the words of Jesus and his wonderful message of new life and growth. We will glimpse how his teaching, miracles and parables lead to his death and resurrection.

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfil.” (Mt 5:17)

“Then the disciples came and asked him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” He answered, ‘To you it has been given to know the secret of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.’” (Mt 13:10-11)
