About Us

CCBI Commission for Bible has been making all the efforts possible to promote Biblical Apostolate in India. It is creating a new awareness on the importance of Bible culture and Biblical Apostolate by giving new inspiration and impetus. It began to generate new enthusiasm and initiative by coordinating various isolated efforts and encourages people engaged in the Biblical Apostolate. It offers helps and services of various kinds.

However, this gained new emphasis and attention after the 12th General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops held from 5 to 26 October 2008 and the CCBI XXI Plenary Assembly from 12 to 18 February 2009 which dwelt on "the Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church".

Above all, the Commission has focused on nationwide organization and coordination and set up of structures for Biblical Apostolate at National, Regional and Diocesan levels. It is a fact that quite a lot has been done in the field of Biblical Apostolate. At the same time there is a lot to be done in India, a land of saints and sages with a rich spiritual and cultural heritage of literature, beliefs and traditions.
