National Catholic Bible Conference Returns to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia



WEST CHESTER, Pa. (March 27, 2013) — The National Catholic Bible Conference is returning to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia June 21-22 at the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  This annual event is designed to help Catholics understand Scripture, apply it to their lives, and proclaim its message to a world desperately in need of conversion.

Featuring Bishop Arthur J. Serratelli, Jeff Cavins, Scott Hahn, Mary Healy, Michael Barber, and more, this year’s conference theme is Scripture and the New Evangelization. “Many people may feel like they are not called to evangelize others, or that they are not capable. But that’s not true,” says Jeff Cavins. “The reality is, most evangelization does not happen in Church or in catechism class. It happens every day in ordinary circumstances. There are multiple opportunities to share our faith with others, but in order to do so we must first be formed by the Word ourselves.”

Sponsored by Ascension Press, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and the Augustine Institute, The 2013 National Catholic Bible Conference will offer more than fifteen talks to choose from, among them: “Holy Spirit and Holy Boldness: Acts of the Apostles as the Blueprint for the New Evangelization,” “Jesus the Bridegroom and the Woman at the Well,” “Lord Teach Us to Pray,” “St. Peter and the Three Stages of the Spiritual Life,” and “Called, Chosen, Sent!”

“This conference is for everyone, laity, priests, and religious. We all need a deeper understanding of God’s Word; it is not possible to be “done.” By virtue of our Baptism we are called to proclaim the Faith and this begins by sharing the richness of Scripture with others,” says Matthew Pinto, president of Ascension Press. “And in appreciation for their service to the Church, priests, deacons, religious, and seminarians can register for free.”
