CBF Activities

Biblical Pastoral Ministry

There are as many approaches to Sacred Scripture as there are people listening to the Word of God. Every culture, society or group has its own emphases in the way it reads the Bible and translates its message into life in our times. The Catholic Biblical Federation fosters and promotes the cultural diversity and breadth of biblical pastoral ministry around the world.

Plenary Assemblies & Congresses

The governing body of the Federation is the Plenary Assembly (PA). It is a meeting of delegates of the Full and Associate Members of the Federation and is normally held every six years, at a time and place determined by the Executive Committee.

Projects & Initiatives

Besides the continuous work in various countries and regions around the globe the Catholic Biblical Federation initiates and promotes numerous concrete projects in the areas of Bible translation, pastoral care, qualified religious training, the media, ecumenism, biblical studies, etc.
