Episcopal  Commission  on  the  Biblical  Apostolate 

Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines

Welcome to the website of the CBCP Episcopal Commission on the Biblical Apostolate


We, Biblical-Pastoral Animators, 
commit ourselves 
to a new Evangelization 
through the Word of God.


That all pastoral work be animated 
by the Word of God.  

Since “ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ”, making the Bible the inspiration of every ordinary and extraordinary pastoral outreach will lead to a greater awareness of the person of Christ, who reveals the Father and is the fullness of divine revelation.

2022 Catholic Daily Bible Reading Guide

To our dear Bible Animators

We are aware that you are very excited about the coming 2022 Catholic Daily Reading Guide.

The 2022 CDBRG that we revised includes all complete Readings and the Responsorial Psalm. Because of this new edition, it took time for the Philippine Bible Society to finish the printing. Besides, we will only have limited printed copies.

On the other hand, we are making available a digital copy which can be printed on ordinary letter size paper to supplement the printed copies.

To download a copy of the CDBRG, please click the link of your preferred format.

We would appreciate if you can send us your feedback on the new format of the CDBRG via Messenger: @ecba.cbcp or email: ecbacbcp2@gmail.com.
