about

"The program provided me a new dimension of scripture understanding. The effect has been for me, as an educator, to much better convey the Christian teachings, in a way that appears to captivate many of my young students.  I would recommend to all, Church or lay persons; it could enrich your life"

J.H.

"this was my first visit to the Holy land and Jerusalem. I was shocked by the diversity of life, beliefs and living standards in Jerusalem and the West Bank. It was like going back in time. Based in the Old City was amazing, it enabled me to absorb so much more of the lecturers than I would have if I'd done the program in my homeland. Thank you biblical Formation Centre"

Biblical formation is at the heart of the life and ministry of the Congregation of Notre Dame de Sion. The Centre for Biblical Formation in Jerusalem offers programs of study centred on the Word of God: drawing on Jewish sources and tradition; visiting sites related to the biblical text; reflecting on relevant Church Documents; and engaging with the peoples of the Land.

Participants at the Centre have the unique opportunity to study, contemplate and pray with the biblical text in the Land so central to its composition. Participants are part of an international, ecumenical community exposed to the best of contemporary Christian and Jewish scholarship. Living in this bustling and cosmopolitan city, central to Jews, Christians and Muslims you will begin to appreciate the religious, cultural and political complexity that is Jerusalem.

The program will be based at Ecce Homo, the biblical historical house on the Via Dolorosa in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem. The lecture and study rooms are designed and equipped to help deliver lectures and presentations using smart presentation technology. Accommodation is provided within the Ecce Homo Pilgrimhouse, usually, single rooms with en-suite. 

The house is described as a haven of tranquility and peace within the vibrancy that is the Old City
