Episcopal Commission on the Biblical Apostolate

Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines


A Community of Disciples 

nourished by the Word of God,

Witnessing to the Gospel,

and Striving to be a Church

that is poor and for the poor,

with Mary, Mother of the Word, as model.


We commit ourselves to a renewed evangelization through the implementation of Vatican II’s Constitution on Divine Revelation (Dei Verbum) and the Plenary Council of the Philippines’ (PCP II) vision of a Church of the Poor in our reading, studying, praying, living, sharing and celebrating the Word of God in response to Verbum Domini's call  to “animate every pastoral activity in the Church with the Word of God”.
