Lay Leaders' Formation

First BA Lay Leaders Formation


 The Episcopal Commission on the Biblical Apostolate has just held its First BA Lay Leaders’ Formation-Seminar on August 2-3, 2014 at St. Joseph Retreat House in Sampaloc, Manila.  The speakers were Most Revered Pablo Virgilio David, ECBA Chairman, who talked about “Bible Apostolate as the Core of Ministries”;  and Most Reverend Broderick Pabillo, who discussed the implications for the laity of Pope Francis’ directive to the youth during the most recent  World Youth Day, “Go and make a mess!”  The Executive Secretary, Dr. Nati Pagadut facilitated the workshops for the two talks.

There were 25 participants from all over the country, with Mindanao having the most number of representatives.


This  seminar-workshop was a follow-up to one of the resolutions at the National Biblical Workshop, which is for ECBA to conduct on-going formation  for those who are in the Biblical Apostolate.

The seminar-workshop was preceded by a two-day Bibliodrama Exchange/Workshop attended by Bibliodrama Philippines from all over the country.
