Catholic Biblical Federation is present in all regions of the world
The Catholic Biblical Federation is represented by 346 members (103 Full Members, 243 Associate members) in 125 countries of the world. These members are engaged in the most varied realms of biblical pastoral ministry. A common goal unites all members in their various tasks and areas of engagement: to work together for the single goal of making “easy access to the Bible” a reality for as many people as possible. In the words of the Plenary Assembly 2015: “With trust in God, the Merciful Father (2 Cor 1:3), we assume as Biblical Federation the challenges of a new chapter in evangelization (EG 1) in the context of a new era characterized by the immense wonders that humanity is discovering in God's creation, but where there is also present social exclusion, widespread violence, especially violence against women and children, the power of technology that paradoxically links us but also makes us more individualistic, the feverish pursuit of frivolous pleasures, terrorism and fratricidal wars, mixed with religious elements, particularly in the Middle East.”
Based on the principle of subsidiarity the Catholic Biblical Federation is divided into seven regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, Latin America, North America and Oceania . Some of these regions are further subdivided into subregions.
The regional and subregional coordinators have the task of promoting biblical pastoral ministry in their own regions and of coordinating it with the support of the General Secretariat. All the coordinators work on a voluntary basis.
