THE LOS ANGELES RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CONGRESS

RECongress is the largest annual gathering of its kind in the world. The four-day event is held at the Anaheim (Calif.) Convention Center and is sponsored by the Los Angeles Office of Religious Education. Begun in 1968 as an "institute," RECongress is open to people of all vocations and different faiths.
 

Youth Day (February 21, 2013) – Congress opens on Thursday with a day-long event for high school 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 to experience the energy of a Youth Day Rally. See our Youth Day page.
 

Congress days (February 22-24) – The remaining three-day weekend is open to adults and young adults and offers more than 200 speakers presenting over 300 workshops, in addition to lunchtime entertainment, evening concerts, Liturgy in a variety of characters, the Exhibit Hall and much more.
 

Free Exhibits (open to Registrants only) – One of the perks of Congress is the Exhibit Hall – held Friday through Sunday – showcasing over 200 companies ranging from religious art to music, and from publishing houses to educational institutions, in addition to our own represented Archdiocesan ministries. See the 2012 Exhibitor Listing.

Youth Day 2013 will continue in the new format of two tracks – everyone choosing either morning Arena events (Track 1) or afternoon Arena events (Track 2). Everyone gets to see the Arena speaker, so you only need to select one speaker workshop choice.
