Annual Bible Celebration Launches for U.S. Catholics
The Catholic Church in America launches National Bible Week.
Building on partnership with American Bible Society during the World Meeting of Families, the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops launched a National Bible Week in November 2015. The Conference invites “families, parishes, schools and other Catholic groups,” to participate in this annual celebration of God’s Word. This year’s theme was “The Bible: A Book for the Family.”
“I don’t think there has been a more exciting time in the history of the Catholic Church to be a Catholic,” says Alicia DeFrange, manager of Catholic ministries programs for American Bible Society. DeFrange says the example of Pope Francis is helping spur Bible engagement among Catholics in the United States. Please pray that God would use this new initiative to speak through his Word in the Catholic Church.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
Help us share God's Word where needed most.
