About Us

Beginners to seasoned scripture scholars are welcome to join our St. Max Bible Studies. These groups meet weekly to read, study, and discuss the Bible via study guides and DVD programs. Each group is autonomous and studies different aspects of the Bible. Most studies begin in the fall and continue through the spring but you are welcome to join at any time. Interested? Contact Cathy Casto at (913) 488-2625 or

Our parish is a firm believer in the opportunity to nurture one’s formation through fruitful discussions over a good book study. This is a time to build community, do some faith-sharing, and grow in fellowship. Meeting schedules vary, most sessions start in the fall, and open to everyone age 18 and older. Whether joining a specific book club, video series, or a small group, whichever sounds like a good fit for you, please reach out to Holly Moran at with any questions or for more details.
