LIKE http://www.facebook.com/SummerScriptureSeminar It is such a cool program that it's a shame so few people know about it.. It goes from the evening of June 22 thru the morning of June 27. We have great speakers coming to talk - including Fr. Robert Barron. It's designed to be a combo Scripture study/retreat, but we can also accommodate people whose schedule might limit them to only a few days or only a few talks. We hope to get more people who are on fire for the Faith to come too.
Speakers and audience come from anywhere across and outside the United States. Approximate audience blend is 50% ordained priests & deacons 25% religious brothers or sisters and 25% lay ministers, educators or catechists. The Summer Scripture Seminar is the premier continuing education program of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake by the Institute for Ongoing Formation. Since the early 1970’s, this seminar has enjoyed a loyal commitment on the part of participants. Ninety percent of our students return each year.
The Summer Scripture Seminar has become a community of women and men committed to ministry and learning in the Church. Since the Bible is the soul of theology, USML chose to stress ongoing study of the scriptures as the emphasis of the seminar.
We welcome you to our web site. In its pages you will find information about this exciting program. You will meet an exceptional faculty, learn what participants say about the seminar, and view next year’s program.
The seminar is a cooperative venture by the Institute For Ongoing Formation and the Department of Biblical Exegesis and Proclamation of Mundelein Seminary at the University of St. Mary of the Lake. Fr. Martin Zielinski and Dr. Elizabeth Nagel direct the seminar.
The outstanding faculty of the program is drawn from the top biblical scholars and theologians in the United States.
