CBAP 20th Annual Convention

The Catholic Biblical Association of the Philippines (CBAP) held its 20th Annual Convention at Claret School, Quezon City, Philippines on August 31 and September 1, 2019. The participants reflected on the verse “Stay with us…” (Lk 24:29) with the theme Bible, Youth and Social Realities.

BAFC 2019

With God's grace the Bible Animators' Formation Course 2019 ended joyfully for everyone especially the participants. It was a joy to witness how they gradually shed off their masks and jelled with one another as sisters and brothers and became a community.
