ANNOUNCEMENTS

Exhibitors

There are 225 exhibitors at Congress 2006. You can find last-minute updates at www.RECongress.org/2006/exhibitors.htm

Compendium of Catechism Available March 31

The new Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church will be available starting March 31, says the U.S. bishops' conference.

The 200-page synthesis of the 1992 Catechism will be published exclusively by USCCB Publishing, the publishing office of the episcopate.

USCCB Publishing will launch the Compendium in English and Spanish at the 2006 Los Angeles Religious Education Congress. The paperback version will be available first with the hardcover to follow shortly after.

The Compendium consists of 598 questions and answers, echoing to some degree the format of the popular Baltimore Catechism which was a standard text in many Catholic parishes and schools from 1885 to the 1960s.

The Compendium is available for order at www.usccbpublishing.org.
