Encounter Christ in His Word

Even though we read Scripture every Sunday at Mass, we can always come to a deeper understanding of God’s Word to experience a fuller union with Christ. As St. Jerome observed, “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” Join our world-renowned Scripture scholars to be refreshed by Jesus himself in Word and Sacrament.

“Attending the Applied Biblical Studies Conference blessed me with a deeper and richer prayer life. It gave me a renewed vigor for studying the faith and the Bible, and I left with a greater knowledge and understanding of my calling as the Bride of Christ.”

Tiffany O.

“The speakers were brilliant in their knowledge, shared their enthusiasm and love of the faith and inspired us to continue growing and learning. I plan to return year after year and to spread the word about the conference. I wish all Catholics could attend.”
