Unlock Verbum for Your Whole Parish–Free

Catholic parishes have been forced by the pandemic to stop public Masses. The transition to digital church activities has been particularly difficult for Catholics, since it has meant lack of access to many of the sacraments. But with a robust online library from Verbum, your parishioners can stay close to the daily readings of the Church at home. Verbum is providing free access to our software to every Catholic parish in the world.

Enjoy these Catholic Bibles and commentaries included with each license:

Step 1: Find or Create Your Parish Group for Free

Check to see if your parish already has a Faithlife group. If not, create one for your parish now.

Find your parish group OR create a new group

If you create a new group for your parish, be sure to set your privacy level to “private” during your group set-up so that other parishioners can find your group and request to join.

If you already have a group, make sure that the privacy levels are at “private” by navigating to Settings > Group Settings in the sidebar of your group page and looking under the Privacy and Safety heading for your group.

Note: If you are a layperson looking for a solution for your parish, send this page to your priest, deacon, or parish staff so they can enroll your parish in this program and invite the whole congregation. Or

Step 2: Request Licenses for Your Parishioners
