Homily Import

In Verbum 10 and higher, you can import Microsoft Word .docx files into the Homily Manager tool to bring homily content into Verbum.

Note: Available in packages Silver and above.


Note: Verbum can import homilies on the Desktop app or the Web app at app.verbum.com.

Format Your Homily

Verbum can import .docx files only. If you have files in another format (e.g., txt, pdf), first export or convert your file(s) into .docx.

Verbum will attempt to honor text styles and colors upon import.

  • The import will generate slides for any Microsoft Word heading.
  • During the import process, Verbum will also parse Scripture references and tag them when applicable.
  • The import will match your colors, text formatting, and font sizes as closely as possible.

Note: The Verbum import does not currently display images, tables, and hyperlinks.
