Class format

The class begins with a live lecture given by the teaching director of "Seeking Truth," Sharon Doran. Sharon is an experienced Bible teacher and uses many visuals in her presentations. Sharon has master's degrees in both Education and Pastoral Theology with an emphasis in Sacred Scripture. As a life long Catholic she has a deep love and respect for Christ's bride the church and the endorsement of her Archbishop George Lucas, as well as the other Nebraska Bishops, James Conley and Joseph Hanefeldt.  The class then divides into small discussion groups. Each group is led by a trained facilitator. During this time, you will share your prepared responses to the home study questions. The typical small group has 12-15 members: small enough that all can participate, but large enough to generate a lively discussion. 


Each year brings a new study. For 2022-23, we will be studying "The Gospel of Mark.” 

Please join us for the fast-paced good news of St. Mark. This is the shortest of all New Testament gospels and is likely the first to have been written, yet it often tells of Jesus’ ministry in more vivid detail than other synoptic gospels. Mark recounts what Jesus did in a unique style, where one incident follows directly upon another.

It is a breathless narrative where Mark stresses Christ’s message about the kingdom of God now breaking into human life as good news and Jesus himself as the salvation of the Father.

Jesus is the Son whom God has sent to rescue humanity by serving and by sacrificing his own life for the sake of all humanity. Especially interesting is the logic and ordering of Mark’s various accounts. All has meaning and purpose in this anointed author’s lay out design. You will be amazed at the new insights you will glean when studying Mark in the Seeking Truth canonical approach.

Registration opens April 15th!
