SUMMER BIBLE SERIES 2019
Angels & Demons
Faciliated by Msgr. Charles Pope, Pastor
General Theme: In this bible study, we considered both Angels and Demons and pondered what the Bible and the Church teaches us about both. There are many exaggerated and erroneous notions about both angels and demons that must be brought into line. There are also many fascinating and important things to know. Our goal is to increase appreciation and respect for the angels and their ministry. Of the demons, we must be sober and clear but our goal is also to reduce unreasonable fears about their activity and power.
