Christian Churches Join Hands in Celebrating National Bible Week 2011



Participants and delegates from the different Christian churches in Pangasinan will celebrate together and in solidarity the National Bible Week 2011 with the introductory celebration dubbed “i-Proclaim” to be held at the Atrium of the CSI City Mall, Dagupan City on January 23 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The Biblical Apostolate of the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan is spearheading the celebration. National Bible Week is celebrated on 23-30 January 2011.

The following will take part in the continuous reading of the Gospel of John: The Roman Catholic Church, Iglesia Filipina Indendiente (IFI), United Church of Christ of the Philippines (UCCP), United Methodist Church (UMC), The Business Sector will read one chapter. The Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen choir and the different choirs of the Christian Churches will sing during the intermission of the reading.

i-Proclaim! is patterned after the Canadian Bible Society’s Proclamation which began in Quebec, Canada. Over 200 readers came together in 1995 to read the Holy Scriptures in 12 different languages. The “i-Proclaim” is an historic,ecumenical, public oral reading of the Bible that seeks to draw Filipinos together during these trying times, under the banner of God’s Word. i-Proclaim! also offers a unique opportunity to support the May They Be One Bible Campaign which seeks to produce and distribute 5 million Bibles to 5 million poor Filipino families within the next 5 years.
