4 WELCOME WELCOME TO CONGRESS Archbishop Jose Gomez Welcome to the grace of New Beginnings and to a future filled with Hope. Cardinal Roger Mahony In gratitude for your leadership and support of Congress for 25 years. May the path before you be blessed in abundance Religious Education Congress

5 WELCOME General Info March 2011 I are delighted to welcome you to our annual Religious Education Congress. This wonderful annual gathering affords us the opportunity to renew our discipleship with Jesus Christ, our membership in the Body of Christ, His Church, and our commitment to the ministry of evangelization and catechesis. This year s theme, Hold Firm...Trust!, is inspired by the Scriptures for the Second Sunday of our Lenten journey. We are drawn into the extraordinary love of God who accompanies us on our faith journeys, steadies us in times of challenge, and leads us to the fullness of the Paschal Mystery. Trusting in God s presence and power, we walk with confidence through seasons of dark and of light. The Keynote and addresses, the many workshops, and the varied Liturgical Celebrations offered throughout the weekend are a rich source of renewal for us all. We are gratified and encouraged that so many of you take advantage of the extraordinary opportunities to deepen your lives in Jesus Christ, to reaffirm your love for the Church, and to commit yourselves to proclaiming the Good News of Jesus for the whole world. Your leadership and faithful participation are key to the ongoing growth and well-being of our parish communities. Please be assured of my gratitude and encouragement as you continue to be involved in this essential ministry of catechesis in our Church. Asking God s blessings upon you, your families and parish communities, and with every best wish, I am Sincerely yours in Christ, His Excellency Most Reverend José H. Gomez Archbishop of Los Angeles 3

6 WELCOME Religious Education Congress

7 WELCOME General Info March 2011 It is a great joy for me to welcome you once again to our uplifting and inspiring Religious Education Congress. This outstanding weekend offers many opportunities for re-energizing our lives and enriching our ministries. The Congress theme Hold Firm Trust! echoes the words of the prophet Jeremiah who likens the one who trusts, to a tree by the waterside that has no fear even in a year of drought. Nourished at its roots by the rich soil, it grows and flourishes in all seasons. Heartened by this promise we move forward, buoyed up with energy for the journey. As you will recall, a Religious Education Endowment Fund has been established in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for the ongoing education and formation of Directors of Religious Education, Adult Educators, Young Adults and Youth Ministers. The fund is currently enabling 20 students to pursue a master s degree in Religious Education. Your gift offering at the 2010 Congress Saturday night liturgies together with online contributions added $44,702 to this fund. We thank for your on-going generosity. Our spirits are sure to be lifted with the inspiring liturgical celebrations, entertainment and multicultural expressions provided. In the midst of the many activities there is also opportunity to step back and rest in the silence of Sacred Space, walk the labyrinth or participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Thank you for your exceptional leadership and your unwavering commitment to keep on sharing the Good News of our rich heritage. I look forward to welcoming you at this spirit-filled gathering. Sincerely, Sister Edith Prendergast, RSC Archdiocesan Director 5
