Saint Jerome

Patron Saint of Bible Study

Welcome to the Cork Scripture Group website, where you will find information on our latest Scripture-related courses and events, articles and notes and links to other Scripture websites. 

"The study of the sacred Scriptures must be a door opened to every believer.  It is essential that the revealed word radically enrich our catechesis and all our efforts to pass on the faith.  Evangelisation demands familiarity with God's word, which calls for dioceses, parishes and Catholic associations to provide for a serious, ongoing study of the Bible, while encouraging its prayerful individual and communal reading.  We do not blindly seek God, or wait for him to speak to us first, for 'God has already spoken, and there is nothing further that we need to know, which has not been revealed to us.  Let us receive the sublime treasure of the revealed word."

Pope Francis
