At the service of the Word…

The Biblical Apostolate of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore aims to cultivate in the people a personal encounter with Christ through praying with the Scriptures in order to live, share and witness the Gospel.

We strive to achieve this by offering:

  • Resources for faith formation based on the Word of God
  • Biblical courses

Our initiatives also support local parishes to establish their own Bible Apostolate Teams, conveying the love of Scripture to fellow parishioners.

From 16 November 2017, the Biblical Apostolate is entrusted to the care of Fr. Ferdinand Purnomo OCD as its Director. Biblical Apostolate also works closely with the Regional Biblical Commission (RBC) of the Malaysia-Singapore-Brunei Bishops’ Conference.

“Something which has existed since the beginning,
which we have heard,
which we have seen with our own eyes,
which we have watched and touched with our own hands,
the Word of Life – this is our theme.”
(1 John 1:1)
