The Great Adventure Bible Study Program

Great Adventure Study

The Diocese of Knoxville wants to help your parish’s Bible Study efforts. As a person committed to parish education and catechesis, you know the importance Scripture has in the life of the Church. The Church’s liturgy, teaching, and spirituality are nourished by Scripture. It is through Scripture that God communicates Himself to us and lovingly speaks to His children. In order to bring about a true renewal in the Church, we must help Catholics understand the Bible and make it a part of their daily lives.

Parishes wishing to schedule facilitator training to being a Great Adventure Bible Study class should contact Sister Mary Timothea Elliott: 865-862-5757, email:

“The effect on my parishioners has been wonderful: a deeper love for Christ, a deeper experience with the sacraments, and continued growth and love for the Scriptures.”—Fr. Michael Becker, St. Paul, Minnesota
