5 WELCOME Welcome to Congress Religious Education Congress

6 WELCOME General Info February 2009 Dear Congress Participants, May I take this opportunity to welcome you to another wonderful Religious Education Congress. Each year this marvelous event affords us an opportunity to renew our faith and our commitment to the ministry of evangelization and catechesis. The 2009 theme Love Unfolding Igniting Our Yes flows from the Scriptures of the First Sunday in Lent. We are reminded that Covenant Love, poured out and at the heart of all of creation, draws us ever more profoundly into the heart of a loving God. It is the way of Jesus who called his disciples and now invites us to utter our yes with courage, confident that through our own passion the lives of others will catch fire and be made new again. The excellent keynotes, workshops, and liturgical celebrations offered throughout the weekend are a source of enrichment and renewal for all. I am gratified and encouraged that so many of you take advantage of the wonderful opportunities for networking, input, and renewal. Your leadership and participation are key to the ongoing growth and well being of our parish communities of faith. Please be assured of my continuing support and encouragement as you dedicate your time and energy to this most vital catechetical ministry. Asking God s blessing on you, your families and parish communities, and with every best wish, I am Sincerely yours in Christ, His Eminence Cardinal Roger Mahony Archbishop of Los Angeles 3

7 WELCOME Dear Friends, It is with great joy that I welcome you to yet another wonderful faith-filled Congress. The weekend offers us the opportunity to gather, renew and recommit to sharing the Good News. Our theme for 2009, Love Unfolding... Igniting Our Yes, is inspired by the Scriptures for the first Sunday of Lent. Trusting in God s faithful Covenant, we are nourished and sustained on the journey. Our bond of oneness generates and ignites a fresh energy and propels us to give voice to our yes anew. 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 10 students to pursue a master s degree in Religious Education. Your gift offering at the 2008 Congress Saturday night liturgies added $42,000 to this fund. We also thank those who made a special contribution to the endowment with their online registration. The creative and inspirational liturgical celebrations and entertainment provided are sure to lift our spirits and ignite our yes. At the heart of the many activities there is also opportunity to come apart and rest in the silence of Sacred Space, walk the labyrinth or celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Thank you for your wonderful leadership and your unwavering commitment to uttering your yes and keeping the vision of Jesus central to all that you are and do. I look forward to greeting you at this spirit-filled gathering. Sincerely, Sr. Edith Prendergast, RSC Archdiocesan Director Office of Religious Education Religious Education Congress
