LA Religious Education Conference

Archbishop Timothy Broglio speaks to catechists for U.S. Military families at the Mid-Atlantic Congress on Feb. 15, 2019 in Baltimore.

A 35-member group of Catholics affiliated with the AMS is among thousands of Catholic catechetical lay leaders, instructors, and others who gathered for the annual Los Angeles Religious Education Congress.  The March 22-24 Congress, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Office of Religious Education, is being held at the Anaheim Convention Center under the theme, “Thirsting for Justice.”

Mr. Jose Amaya, AMS Director of Faith Formation, who is attending the Congress, said:  “The Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, like the Mid-Atlantic Congress, is a wonderful opportunity for military catechetical leaders and catechists to nourish their faith journey with Jesus Christ and to strengthen their skills to teach the faith to all. Participants will find the liturgies, general assemblies, and the workshops to be inspiring and vibrant moments to ignite the flame of faith to go out to make disciples for Jesus Christ. The Congress is also an opportunity to meet and interact with other colleagues and to find good resources for ministry.”
