Bibles and Catechisms

Philadelphia Lutheran Ministries has from its inception worked with immigrant populations to give them God’s Word, often using Luther’s Small Catechism as the main tool to present Lutheran theology to people who may have no experience with Christian teaching. Throughout its nearly two decades of work in the city, Philadelphia Lutheran ministries has distributed Bibles and Small Catechisms in a number of languages, including Indonesian, Arabic, Spanish, Eritrean, and Korean.

This work will certainly continue since Shepherd of the City is situated in a highly diverse neighborhood where families from all over the world, particularly Southeast Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and Eastern Europe, live and work.
