Our Lenten Bible Study Series Guide curriculum provides engaging lessons that will equip the user with basic biblical disciplines that lead to spiritual growth. They include current and culturally relevant topics that Black Catholics are facing today. Each lesson clearly connects the truth of God’s Word to the life of the user and presents a choice for life transformation.

The Bowman-Francis Ministry Team has decided not to charge for the 

2021 Virtual Lenten Bible Study Series but asks that you sow a seed into our ministry by giving a LOVE OFFERING. Your financial gift will help us to continue fulfill our mission to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, throughout Black Catholic diaspora.

 

Your LOVE OFFERING may be made in the form of DEBIT/CREDIT CARDs

(by way of digital based payments systems i.e., Zelle, CASHAPP and coming soon PayPal). 

For more information on gift giving, click the image with the heart below.
