"Hold Firm ... Trust!"
The annual Religious Education Congress held in Anaheim, CA, is ready to enrich and revitalize us once more. Sponsored by the Office of Religious Education at the Los Angeles Archdiocese, Congress draws in excess of 40,000 participants over the course of this internationally acclaimed four-day event, with more than 300 workshops to choose from, covering a vast range of topics and interests from spirituality and personal development to biblical studies, theology and liturgical music.
Over the weekend participants will enjoy morning praise, workshops, evening liturgies and a variety of prayer experiences with internationally renowned leaders in the areas of liturgical music and worship. Noontime and evening concerts offer additional opportunities for praise and worship – delightful experiences which engage and renew participants!
