RE: Regional, Diocesan, Parish Reports and other Matters

Dear Bible Apostolate Regional Directors, Diocesan Coordinators,

Consultors and Affiliates,

Happy Feast of our Lady of the Holy Rosary, Mary our Model of Discipleship !

We are blessed in this Year of the Laity with many seminars, reflections, activities and plans in relation to discipleship, Verbum Domini, the new evangelization and Evangelii Gaudium (Joy of the Gospel). We thank the Lord for this concerted effort of bringing the Word, intensifying people’s love for Scripture and deepening our own formation of listening and doing what is expected of us as Bible Apostolate leaders in our respective settings.

As a commission on the Bible Apostolate by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), we are expected to present a report to our bishops during their plenary assembly to keep them abreast with what is going on in the biblical apostolate. This year’s report is expected to be in the CBCP secretariat by November 2014 instead of December (2014) or January (2015) because the said months will be focused on preparations for the coming of the pope. Hence, please submit your reports before November 20, 2014.  read more
