The CBF Southern & Western Europe Subregion is made up of 22 catholic biblical institutions from Belgium, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland. Among these institutions, 8 represent the Episcopal Conferences of their country and are full members, the others are associate members.
Representatives of the Subregion meet for a three-day session each year, where they share lectio divina and share activities that contribute to the biblical inspiration of pastoral activity in their country.
A coordinator and a small committee ensure the organization of this meeting and the links between the members as well as relations with the General Secretariat and the other regions of the Catholic Biblical Federation.
