Emeritus Archbishop Hickey said that the purpose of The Biblical Foundation is to implement the wishes of Holy Father in Verbum Domini that Catholic people deepen their knowledge of and love for Sacred Scripture and make it part of their daily payer life.

An important and useful feature of The Biblical Foundation is the website


The website offers parishes and individuals study and prayer resources. Some of the features of the website include:

  • At Home with your Bible
  • Your Bible Questions Answered
  • Using the Bible in Family Prayer

The website also provides information on applying for Bible study scholarships for the laity and religious. These are provided through the BJ Hickey Biblical Foundation.

The coordinator of The Biblical Foundation is Dr Michelle Jones and her office is located within The Faith Centre, 450 Hay Street, Perth.
