Ascension encourages everyone to join us for the Introduction to the Old Testament with Fr. Michael Gunian, OFM. Fr. Michael is offering an exciting opportunity to our parish community by teaching a six-session course throughout the fall. This course is for anyone who would like to deepen their understanding of their Old Testament and explore some of its key themes. No previous Bible Study experience is necessary. All classes will be held in the hall @ 7:00PM on the following Tuesday evenings: September 23, October 7, October 21, November 4, November 18 and December 2. Contact Janelle at 858-279-2735 EXT. 108 or at janelle@ascension-sd.org to register. Please read below for Fr. Michael’s biography.

Michael Guinan, OFM, a Franciscan priest, received his Ph.D. (Semitic Languages & Literatures) from the Catholic University of America in 1972. After teaching more than 40 years at the Franciscan School of Theology (FST) in Berkeley, CA, he is now Professor Emeritus of Old estament, Semitic Languages [Hebrew and Aramaic], and Biblical Spirituality.

When FST moved to its new campus at Old Mission San Luis Rey, Oceanside, CA, he moved down with the school. Though retired, he still teaches occasional courses for FST, for the Old Mission San Luis Rey Retreat Center, and for the San Diego Diocesan Institute. In addition to FST, he has taught at St. Bonaventure University, NY; St. Patrick’s Seminary, Menlo Park,CA; and Our Lady of the Angels Franciscan Seminary in Manila, Philippines.
