CWBS is a Catholic ministry, which explores the Scriptures through the loving heart of the Church. The fullness of our Christian faith is investigated through the Tradition and Teaching Magisterium of the Church, assisted by patristic and contemporary biblical scholarship. All seekers are welcome, regardless of religious denomination. The four goals of this ministry are evangelism, catechesis, formation and discipleship.

  • Through evangelism, we reach those who seek and those who suffer, those who haven't been reached and those who have been faithfully attending church for many years.
  • Through catechesis, we seek to explain the truths of our Catholic faith and equip our members with apologetic tools to understand and give an account of what we believe.
  • Through formation, we lead our members in the Gospel's life long call to personal holiness through prayer, the sacraments, study, and worship.
  • Through discipleship, we discover what it takes to be a true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. As disciples we can evangelize more effectively and draw nearer to our Lord.

As members of the study, we pray with our brothers and sisters for their intentions, seeking to mourn with those who mourn and rejoice with those who rejoice. Prayer, both in our discussion groups and in our class setting, is essential to all that we do. We praise God through song and communal worship as well.

CWBS seeks to be guided by the Holy Spirit in full submission to the Roman Catholic Church.
