What is Congress?
Begun as an Institute in 1956, our first event was held at Mount Carmel High School on Hoover Street in Los Angeles. There were some 500 teachers and catechists in attendance at the two-day conference, listening to speakers and gaining experience from other teachers. Read about the Congress Milestones here.
