About the Religious Education Congress
The Los Angeles Religious Education Congress is the largest annual gathering of its kind in the world. The four-day event is held at the Anaheim Convention Center and is sponsored by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Office of Religious Education. Begun in 1968 as an "institute" for religious education teachers, Congress has grown to include people of all vocations and different faiths, and offers more than 200 speakers presenting over 300 workshops, in addition to lunchtime entertainment, evening concerts, 16 liturgies in a variety of characters, the Exhibit Hall and much more.
