The year 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the Catholic Biblical Federation. The year 2020 marks the 1600th anniversary of the death of Saint Jerome, the great translator of the Bible, who sought to render the Scriptures into the “common” everyday language of ordinary people, so to make the written Word of God available for all. His zeal to make the Scriptures accessible to people arises from his conviction that “ ignorant ia Scripturarum ignorantia Christi est” (ignorance of Scriptures is ignorance of Christ).
Friends of the Catholic Biblical Federation will participate in "United in God's Mission" event in San Diego, CA.
