Prayer nook

October 2021

In preparation for the Plenary Assembly of the Catholic Biblical Federation in April 2022, we invite all members and friends of our Federation to pray for God’s blessing, the Holy Spirit’s guidance, and the intercession of Mary, the Mother of the Word, for all its regions and their activities. 

The intention for this month you can find here:

Presentation of the Region

Biblical ministry in the African Region is a fruit of an ongoing and lively cooperation between the Catholic Biblical Federation and the Biblical Center for Africa and Madagascar (BICAM). The latter brings together all Bishop’s Conferences on the continent. Its mission to promote the Bible and biblical formation among Catholics fits well with the mission of the Federation at large. CBF, for its part, contributes to the work of BICAM by coordinating activities of local biblical centers and institutions run by dioceses, religious orders, and lay associations. Noteworthy is the emphasis of this region on the translation of the Bible into local languages and its distribution. Thanks to the cooperation of the CBF and Kindermissionswerk from Aachen, an elaborate biblical-pastoral project, LectioYouth.Net, was developed and implemented for the youth and adults of Africa, with the aim of providing sound and advanced biblical formation available through the internet.
