Exploring Scripture - Commentary

Each week, Father Doug delves into the Sunday scripture readings.

Father Doug is the Pastoral Associate at St Luke's, Peterborough. He occasionally comes to us in Buckhorn as Celebrant. Father Doug kindly shares his reflections on the Sunday scripture readings.

Do you have an interest in learning more about Holy Scripture? If yes, let us know. We're looking to set up an online Bible Study through Zoom video-conferencing. So let us know. This is open to anyone in the wider community and the parish. Drop us a quick email.
