Bible Study

The Bible Study program is an opportunity for parishioners to study and reflect on scripture. Little Rock Scripture Study has been used to facilitate workbook structured study that allows for learning, discussion and faith sharing. Parishioners are encouraged to reflect on ways that they can participate.
Study guides are provided to all participants and facilitators lead a discussion of chapters and an opportunity is provided to share. The group utilizes a prepared program of text and videos from the Little Rock Scripture Study Program that was started by the Diocese of Little Rock Arkansas.

Parish Handbook

We offer a parish handbook as a way to familiarize you with our parish community, services, programs and ministry opportunities. It serves two purposes: to serve as a resource to let you know of ways that Immaculate Conception/St. Bridget’s may be able to meet your needs, and as a reference for those looking to meet the needs of others by sharing their gifts and talents as volunteers in ministry. If you have been nourished through this parish community and are looking for a way to become more fully involved, please read through the descriptions and prayerfully discern where you may be able to share your gifts with others.
