Have you ever imagined how we get to a place where there is no "us" and "them"? Fr.

Join Catholics throughout the Diocese of Dallas this Lent to break open Scripture, encounter Jesus in the Word, and share faith in Catholic community.

Catechetical Services of the Diocese of Dallas would like to invite every parish to consider participating in Speak in the Light (Matt. 10:27), a Lenten Scripture Journey.

Participants in the program will receive a Bible with a personalized dedication from Bishop Burns.  The program includes a weekly video segment and faith sharing session (one hour), designed to help break open Scripture, encounter Jesus in the Word, and share faith during Lent.  The program is available in both English and Spanish.

  • Video 1:  Old Testament Overview- Mark Hart
  • Video 2: New Testament Overview– Mark Hart
  • Video 3: Catholic approach to scripture and liturgical connection to scripture - Kevin Saunders (Phoenix Bible School)
  • Video 4: Lectio Divina– Fr. Dempsey Acosta
  • No video: I Can Speak in the Light session

There is no cost to parishes to participate!  When we receive your order, you will receive, before Ash Wednesday, links for the video components, PDF’s of the weekly process questions and the “I Can Speak in the Light” complete final session (which you can use the week before Easter week or the week after Easter).  Additionally, you can order a FREE Bible for each participant, in English or Spanish, with a dedication from Bishop Burns - while our supplies last.  So…order early!

Simply click on the link below to submit your order.  You will be asked for the name of your parish, name and contact information of the person filling out the form, name of the person(s) that will be leading the small faith-sharing group(s), the number of people you expect will participate, and the number of bibles you need for participants in English and/or Spanish.  The Catholic English language bible is the latest approved New American Bible revised edition.  The Catholic Spanish language Bible is Dios Habla Hoy.

Note: This sign-up is for parish groups not individuals. If you are a parishioner, please contact your parish leader or pastor to participate.
