The Appeal offers everyone across our diocese an opportunity to participate and promote the central mission of the church. 


Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible includes a series of eight informative and engaging half-hour videos presented by Jeff Cavins.  This is the newly revised version of The Quick Journey through the Bible, that was filmed in Israel and taped in West Chester, PA by Jeff Cavins last year.  Each video will be followed by a lively group discussion.  You can sign up for the study at  Only one email address per participant. To receive the discounted price of $13.00 plus S/H, you must sign up on-line.  You will receive the new color-coded Bible Timeline Chart, a Bible study workbook, and the ability to stream the study videos online or on any mobile device 24/7 until June 6, 2016.  You will also receive free Catholic talks and e-books to download and keep.  This is a great review for former bible study participants and the perfect preparation for The Gospel of Mathew which will begin in September.
