(quote) Matthew-972621 said: I would definately like to start one, however there seems to be little or no interest, I wouldn't know where to begin. There is St. Vincent DePaul involvement which I do help out with, there is men's club and Knight's of Columbus. All of those things are great, but I want Bible studies. When I do find Bible studies, usually at another parish, they're at 7:30 in the morning or another early morning time, which I can't attend as I am on my way to work at that time.
Greetings from a transplant from Indianapolis!
Fr. Noah Casey at the Cathedral started an adult singles group open to anyone: never married, divorced, widowed. It seemed to be going along well until his health problems caused him to take a break. I suggest you contact the Family Life Office at the Catholic Center. Deb Van Velse can give you more info about what's happening around the Archdiocese. In fact, one of my friends on the Southside, farther south than you maybe, wanted to get a group going a couple of years ago but I haven't heard if it was successful
As far as Bible studies are concerned, look on the Ascension Press website to see if you can locate a Bible study in the Indpls. area that uses their materials. I know Christ the King & Joan of Arc were conducting studies in the evening regularly using these particular materials. Joan of Arc's pastor, Fr. Guy Roberts, usually led some very popular studies of his own to which people from all over the area were coming.
As far as getting something going in your own parish, your best bet would be to talk to the person in charge of adult faith formation & see what they tell you. Other people to contact might be the DRE, Pastoral Associate & the pastor, of course.
What about programs, retreats, etc. at Fatima Retreat House?
There are all kinds of resources available in the greater Indianapolis area. See what you can find that interests you. May God direct your steps in this important direction.
