WHAT IS THE RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CONGRESS?

Held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, the RECongress is the largest annual gathering of its kind in the world. With 40,000 people attending each year, the four-day event is sponsored by the Office of Religious Education, a department of the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Begun in 1968 and an "institute" primarily for religious educators, Congress still today keeps the same focus -- to teach more about the Catholic faith as well as to advance personal growth. And today the event is open to people of all vocations and all different faiths.

Youth Day – Congress opens on Thursday with a day-long event geared for high school-age youth. This is an opportunity for students -- not only from the Los Angeles Archdiocese but throughout California and the western states -- to come together and share in Liturgy, workshops, entertainment and experience the energy of the Closing Rally.   See our Youth Day page.

Congress days – The remaining three-day weekend allows adults/young adults the opportunity to choose among 200 speakers presenting over 300 workshops, enjoy lunchtime entertainment and evening concerts, experience Liturgy in a variety of characters and discover numerous other events.

Free Exhibits (open to Registrants only) – One of the perks of Congress is the Exhibit Hall, held Friday through Sunday -- showcasing over 250 companies as exhibitors and ranging from religious art to music, and from publishing houses to educational institutions, in addition to our own represented Archdiocesan ministries.   See our 2011 Exhibitor Listing.

YOUTH DAY - THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 2011

Youth Day is designed for all students from public and Catholic schools, grades 9 through 12. Adult chaperones are required for each group of 10 students (maximum), all attending the same workshop.
