Catholic Women's Bible Study (CWBS) is open to women from all the Catholic Churches in Manatee County. CWBS sessions are hosted at the Ss. Peter and Paul Msgr. Moretti Center.

CWBS meets at Ss. Peter and Paul's Msgr. Moretti Center on Wednesday mornings during announced study periods. We study a book of the Bible or a Bible based theme, such as Peace & Justice, Women of the Bible, Fearless & Free, etc.  All studies are taught from a Catholic perspective.  Studies consist of video presentations followed by small group gatherings. Each study includes a book that expands on the video teaching and has questions to go along with the video and text lesson.  Each week the questions are discussed in small group settings.  We have fellowship at 9:30 a.m., before the meeting starts at 10 a.m.

Because the covid pandemic continues, masks are encouraged (especially for those who are not vaccinated). Small groups may opt to have their own snacks, but we are not offering them for the large group.

We welcome you to join us and learn more about your Catholic Faith. Your non-Catholic friends are also welcome. If you need further information or would like to inquire about the Catholic Women’s Bible Study, please contact Joelise at 941-730-8335 or send an e-mail to [email protected].
