At Holy Faith we are blessed with many opportunities for the study of scripture and the writings of authors who excite and enrich our faith. In addition to the Sunday 9:50 am forums, we offer the following activities:
Men and Women’s Classes
Men’s Bible Study happens every Wednesday at 3:00 pm and Women’s Bible Study every Thursday at 10:00 am. All take place in the Youth Room, upstairs in Conkey House. No special materials are needed, but a bible of course is a must. The discussion is lively, and newcomers are always welcome. A new Evening Bible Study is offered on Mondays from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. All are welcome! Click the link below to find the outline for the current discussion.

Spiritual Classics Study Group
Every Tuesday at 10:00 am there is a study of a Christian classic chosen by the group. Since the study began in the fall of 2010, the group has read and discussed The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis, The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis, The Confession of St. Augustine and Julian of Norwich: Revelations of Divine Love. The conversation is freewheeling, and newcomers to the group feel welcome from the first day.
Spiritual Classics: Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 10:00 am – Fleming Rutledge’s The Crucifixion – Introduction: “The Cross at the Center of Christian Understanding” p. 43
Women’s Spirituality Gatherings
Holy Faith’s Women’s Spirituality Group meets for study and seasonal retreats and is open to all women of the parish and Santa Fe community. Recent study groups have included theological works of Hildegard of Bingen, Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Avila and Sister Joan Chittister. The Women’s Quiet Day took place on February 23, 2019 with the Reverend Caroline Metzler.
