Religious Education Congress 2001

The year 2001 will mark the 35th time that the Archdiocese of Los Angels has sponsored the Religious Education Congress, an event that has become synonymous with the promulgation of spiritual formation in Southern California – and, in deed, the United Sates.

The largest event if its kind, “Congress” draws participants from not only around the country, but around the world. as well. They include bishops and religious, men and women lay catechists, teens and adult leaders, from many parishes and institutes. They come to be nourished spiritually, to grow in knowledge, and to be energized and renews by their interaction with thousands of others – and, finally, to be sent forth to love and sever the Lord and one another.

That spirit is found in the 2001 Congress theme, “Clothed in Love, Summoned Beyond.” In this week, issue, The Tidings devotes eight pages to the Feb. 15-18 Religious Education Congress at the Anaheim Convention Center, exploring its past and offering a preview of what to expect next week.
