Bible Study

Join NKU’s Newman Center every Tuesday for in-person Bible study at the Newman House. This year’s Bible study discusses the families of the New and Old Testament. Pope Francis decaled this the “Year of the Family”, and what better way to respond than to look at the families seen in the Bible. “Holy Family of Nazareth, make us once more mindful of the sacredness and inviolability of the family and its beauty in God’s plan” (Amoris Laetitia, 325).

Book Study

This year’s book study focuses on the Nicene Creed. Join the NKU Newman Center as we go through Bishop Robert Barron’s series The Creed. In The Creed, a new film series blending both documentary footage and dynamic talks, Bishop Robert Barron guides viewers into the depths of the Nicene Creed, a fourth century statement of faith that has profoundly influenced both Eastern and Western spirituality, theology, and liturgy. Join us Tuesday’s on Zoom.
