The year 2020 has been earmarked as a focus on the Bible and ‘The God Who Speaks’.

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales is encouraging all to celebrate, live and share God’s word with this exciting new Scripture initiative.

2020 has been chosen as it is the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’ and the 1,600 anniversary of St Jerome’s death.

The Archdiocese of Birmingham is embracing this Scripture initiative and a steering group is already in place to develop how we will celebrate, live and share God’s word in 2020. 

As part of this exciting initiative Maryvale Institute is offering a series of Study Guides to the New Testament, for Reflective Personal or Parish Study, at a reduced price.
