Biblical Training Institute for Michigan Catholics 2020:
New Testament-The Gospels

We are still planning on beginning the  Biblical Training Institute for Michigan Catholics 2020 this summer.  We feel that we can host a prayerful and informative experience for the first two Institute sessions in June and August, using the Zoom videoconferencing program. Zoom allows participants opportunities for small group sharing and discussion.  We are hopeful that we can meet safely again as a group in fall, if not, we will plan Zoom webinars for the final two sessions.

Upon registration, participants will be emailed a Zoom meeting link, along with all materials they may need.  Most of you are probably familiar with Zoom now.
