Galway Diocesan Pastoral Outreach Zoom Programme

Mark’s Gospel was the first of the Four Gospels to be written. On five Tuesday evenings during five weeks online, facilitated by Fr Gerard McCarthy SVD, we will journey through the Passion narrative of this Gospel, attempting to grow in our understanding of the final days of Jesus, leading to the great event of the Resurrection.

These sessions are not ‘academic’ and it is not necessary to have attended other Bible courses in the past. More than anything the sessions are an attempt to discover the power of God’s Word and the tremendous influence it can have on our lives once we open ourselves to it in faith and hope.

There will be time for questions and discussion in each session. Scripture texts and supporting material will be provided.

The course runs online via Zoom for five Tuesday evenings from 23 February to 23 March 2021.
