St. Jerome Parish Bible study will soon begin a 7-session study of the Holy Spirit in the Bible. There will be two parallel tracks:  7 in-person sessions will be held Tuesday evenings, from 7:30 to 9pm in the Religious Education room beginning April 18; 7 online sessions will be held Thursday evenings, from 7:30 to 9pm via Zoom beginning April 20. The same material will be covered in the in-person and online sessions each week.

For this study we will use a commentary from Little Rock Scripture Study (published by Liturgical Press), by Fr. George Smiga, titled The Holy Spirit in the Bible. The commentary is available from the publisher at this link: ( The Holy Spirit in the Bible: :  George M. Smiga with Little Rock Scripture Study Staff: 9780814666630: : Paperback )
