St. Helen Tuesday Scripture Study Group

Our St. Helen Scripture study group meets on Tuesday nights every other week in St. Helen’s Braden Center at 7:30pm to learn more about and share in our understanding of the Bible and our Catholic Faith. Our next study is listed below. To register for future class notifications, please email Paul Ambro at paul@sthelenchurch.org

New Theology of the Body study, FULFILLED, starting Tuesday, Sep 6, 2022!

In this life-changing series, Christopher West takes you on an eye-opening tour of the first pillar of the Catechism of the Catholic Church – beginning with the “ache” of human longing and ending with a vision of the Creed like you’ve never heard – and in the process demonstrates beyond any shadow of a doubt that Christianity is not the backward list of prohibitions it is so often assumed to be. Rather it’s the religion of desire that holds out to us the hope of infinite bliss and fulfillment.

A dedicated attendance meets requirements for parent’s sacramental prep hours. For further information, please contact Paul Ambro at paul@sthelenchurch.org. To register and optionally order materials, please go here.

We’ll meet on Tuesday evenings 7:30 – 9:00 pm in Braden Center. Below is our tentative schedule:

Linda’s Bible Study Group

A new study series will begin in September on the Book of Revelation. Jeff Cavins takes on one of the most misunderstood books of the Bible. Instead of bogging us down with worry about the end times, Revelation describes how the Mass is the vehicle that connects the kingdom of heaven with the Church on earth.

This class will be available in two formats; one, on Thursdays beginning September 8th – November 10th from 7:30-9:00pm, online, via Zoom; and two, on Fridays beginning September 9th – November 11th from 12:30-2:00pm, in-person at the church parlor (enter through the side door by the bell tower).


Please email or call Linda Asbach (asbach99@gmail.com – 281-736-7366) to register. Please indicate which format you will be joining. This study series will also count towards any parental, sacramental requirements needed for your children’s upcoming sacramental events. Please note in your email or phone call if you will need sacramental credits.
Please order the workbook from Ascension Press ($29). Here is the link to order: https://ascensionpress.com/products/revelation-the-kingdom-yet-to-come-study-set-1
