Bible Study Pop Quiz

Recently, Father Chris surprised everyone at the weekend Masses with a pop quiz.  For those who were unable to attend at either St. Bernard or St. Martin I that weekend, we have printed that quiz below.   To hear why Father gave the quiz, please listen to his homily “Crazy Mercy” given on September 15th and found at the “Homily Recordings” tab on this web site.  To learn more about the Bible and Salvation History, join us for our upcoming Bible Study.  You can register by calling the parish office at 649-4811.
