2008 RECongress Registration for Priests
Religious Education Congress
February 28, 2008 (Youth Day)
February 29 - March 2, 2008 (Congress days)
Dear Brother Priests,
In recent years we have noticed that an increasing number of the faithful are approaching confessors for the celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation at the Religious Education Congress at Anaheim. To meet this growing need, I turn to you and ask that you consider giving of yourselves in sharing your ministry with those who seek sacramental reconciliation.
I am fully aware that weekends are already incredibly busy times for us, and demands on our time and energies are great. Nonetheless, on behalf of those who seek to celebrate the Sacrament in a meaningful and fruitful manner, I ask you to consider making a special effort, if it is at all possible for you, to be present for at least one of the scheduled opportunities for Sacramental Reconciliation. Our goal is to avoid having to turn away anyone seeking the Sacrament. Please consider signing up for at least one opportunity so that the faithful may have a meaningful sacramental experience.
- Priests planning to attend Congress will receive a reduced-rate Congress registration and a lunch voucher.
- Priests not attending Congress but willing to share their ministry for a few hours will receive a complimentary parking pass, a lunch voucher, and a complimentary pass to the Exhibit Hall.
To receive these benefits in return for your service, we need this information by February 8, 2008.
Thank you for your time and the gift of your ministry in the Church.
