WELCOME TO CONGRESS

WELCOME

March 2016
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I would like to extend a warm welcome to each one of you attending Congress
2016!
In this Year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis, it is appropriate that the theme
that brings us together is Boundless Mercy.
In announcing this Jubilee Year, our Holy Father reminds us that mercy
reveals the very mystery of the Most Holy Trinity and is the ultimate and
supreme act by which God comes to meet us. And he calls us to remember
that we must make mercy the path that we walk in our Christian life. As he
writes, mercy is the bridge that connects God and man.
It is my hope that this weekend of prayer, fellowship and formation will be
an opportunity for each one of you to enter into a deeper encounter with the
gift of mercy that we have received from our loving Father. May we allow his
presence to touch our hearts ever more deeply and have a conversion so that
we can overcome everything that keeps us away from him and embrace a life
renewed by his healing mercy. In this way, we can be docile instruments in
the hands of the Lord, and become bridges in the lives of those around us,
helping them to connect with God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
I entrust these days to the loving intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary and
ask God to abundantly bless each one of you and your loved ones.
Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Jos H. Gomez


Archbishop of Los Angeles

2016 Religious Education Congress

WELCOME

WELCOME

Welcome to Congress 2016!


It fills me with joy to extend to you a heartfelt invitation to join us for the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress in Anaheim. What a blessing to those who join us every year and
share their stories and desires to proclaim the Good News!
Our theme for this year, Boundless Mercy, takes its inspiration from the Gospel account of
Jesus speaking to the Samaritan woman at the well, as he promises a spring of living water
springing up in each of us for eternal life. It also reflects the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of
Mercy convoked by Pope Francis. Our Holy Father implores us to constantly contemplate
the mystery of mercy (Misericordiae Vultus, 2). What does it mean in this day and age to be
agents of Gods mercy? To seek the mercy of God in the face of Jesus? Our theme challenges
us to not see the mercy of God as an occasional happenstance but as the context in which we
live and move and have our being.
This mercy springs forth in the variety of workshops, liturgies, entertainment and resources
that are offered throughout the weekend. Come and be replenished deep in your spirit and be
challenged to live the Gospel by our national and international speakers.
Together with all the many activities, you will find opportunities to encounter God in Sacred
Space, in walking the Labyrinth and our Art Exhibit area, as well as in the Sacrament of
Reconciliation.
As you will recall, a Religious Education Endowment Fund has been established in the
Archdiocese of Los Angeles for the ongoing education and formation of Directors of Religious
Education, Adult Educators, Young Adults and Youth Ministers. The fund is currently enabling
15 students to pursue a masters degree in Religious Education. Your gift offering of $36,142
at the 2015 Congress Saturday night liturgies together with registration contributions added
$50,256 to this fund. We thank for your ongoing generosity.
Thank you for your gracious support of our Congress and participation in your communities through ministry, leading others to encounter the riches of Gods mercy that are never
ending!
I look forward to greeting you at Congress 2016.
Sincerely,

Fr. Christopher Bazyouros


Director of Religious Education
Archdiocese of Los Angeles

2016 Religious Education Congress

Boundless Mercy &
the Compassion of Christ
How far can the compassion of Christ reach?
Even to murderers of the innocent? Even to
illegal immigrants who pour over the borders

Sr. Helen Prejean will share how the mercy
of God shapes and directs her life and how it
compels us to serve beyond our limits.

Fr. James L. Heft, SM


Pope Francis, the Environment and U.S. Politics
Is Pope Francis overstepping the boundary between Church and state?
Heft
Is he smart in endorsing the current scientific consensus on climate
change? Is his criticism of capitalism fair? Is he polarizing rather than uniting
Catholics? Join Fr. James Heft as he leads us in an examination of these issues in
our Church today.

BIENVENIDOS AL CONGRESO

BIENVENIDOS

Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas en Cristo,


Bienvenidos al Congreso 2016! Me alegra que estn aqu, aprovechando esta
oportunidad para conocer mejor a Jess y para crecer en su fe.
El tema del Congreso este ao, VER, est tomado de la bella historia del Evangelio
de San Juan sobre el ciego que fue curado y adems recibi el don de la fe.
El Papa Francisco, hablando sobre este pasaje, dice que esta es tambin la historia
de nuestras vidas. Nos dice que nosotros tambin tenemos que abrirnos a la luz
de Cristo para llevar fruto a nuestra vida para que, como nos recuerda San
Pablo, podamos comportarnos como hijos de la luz, con humildad, paciencia,
misericordia.
Tambin queremos aprovechar esta oportunidad para expresar nuestra gratitud a la
Hna. Edith Prendergast, R.S.C. por todos sus aos de servicio a la Arquidicesis
de Los ngeles y al Congreso de Educacin Religiosa. Le decimos un afectuoso
adis, agradecindole por su generosa y dedicada entrega a lo largo de los aos y
le pedimos al Seor que la siga bendiciendo en el futuro.
Rezo para que su participacin en estos das de formacin, fraternidad, oracin
y alabanza los ayude comprender la fe Catlica de manera ms profunda y
enriquezca su relacin con Jesucristo, para que as, l siempre sea el centro de sus
vidas y ministerio.
Encomiendo estos das a la Santsima Virgen Mara y pido a Dios que los bendiga
abundantemente a lo largo del fin de semana.
Sinceramente en Cristo,
+ Jos H. Gomez
Arzobispo de Los ngeles

BIENVENIDOS

Bienvenidos al Congreso 2016!


Me llena de alegra extenderte desde lo ms profundo de mi corazn una invitacin para reunirte
con nosotros en el Congreso de Educacin Religiosa de Los Angeles en Anaheim. Es una
bendicin tenerte cada ao compartiendo tu historia y renovando tu pasin de proclamar la Buena
Nueva!
Nuestro tema para este ao, Misericordia Inagotable, se inspira del encuentro de Jess con
la mujer Samaritana en el pozo, en el cual l promete un manantial de agua viva que brota a
borbotones en cada uno de nosotros para la vida eterna. Tambin el Papa Francisco convoc el Ao
Extraordinario de Jubileo de Misericordia. En su carta de invocacin, l nos urge a contemplar
constantemente el misterio de misericordia (Misericordiae Vultus, 2). Qu significa, en esta
poca, el ser misioneros de misericordia? A buscar la misericordia en el rostro de Jess? Nuestro
tema nos desafa a entender la misericordia, no como una cosa que uno hace de vez en cuando,
sino como el ambiente en que vivimos y nos movemos y somos.
Contemplamos esta misericordia en una variedad esplndida de talleres, liturgias, conciertos
y recursos que se ofrecen todo el fin de semana. Ven! Nuestros conferencistas te ayudarn a
renovarte en espritu y corazn y a desafiarte a vivir por el Evangelio.
Al igual que con esas actividades, tendrs otras oportunidades de encontrar a Dios en el Espacio
Sagrado, en caminar el Laberinto, en la exhibicin de arte y en el Sacramento de Reconciliacin.
Como ustedes recordaran, se ha establecido la Fundacin Monetaria de Educacin Religiosa en
la Arquidicesis de Los ngeles para la formacin y educacin de los Directores de Educacin
Religiosa, Formadores de Adultos, de Jvenes y Ministerios Juveniles. Actualmente este fondo
apoya a 18 estudiantes para obtener su Maestra en Educacin Religiosa. Las donaciones dadas
en las distintas liturgias del sbado durante el Congreso del 2015 junto con sus donaciones de
inscripcin llegaron a $50,256. Les agradezco su continua generosidad.
Mil gracias por tu apoyo al Congreso y tu participacin en los ministerios de tu comunidad,
guiando a los dems a encontrar las riquezas inagotables de la misericordia de Dios!
Te esperamos en el Congreso 2016.
Sinceramente,

Rev. Christopher Bazyouros


Director de Educacin Religiosa

Lead us, Lord, into the desert. Lead us through the wilderness.
Through this journey we will follow For we long to see your face!
In this time of sacred struggle. In this time of sacrifice.

CALL TO WORSHIP
Reading from: The Quran: Chapter 24 verse 35
God is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His Light is a niche wherein
is a lamp the lamp is in a glass, the glass, as it were, a glittering star lit from a blessed
olive tree, neither eastern nor western, whose oil almost lights up, though fire should not
touch it. God guides to His Light whomever He wishes. God draws parables for all, and
God has knowledge of all things.

1. All praise be yours through Brother Sun, bearing a likeness of you, Most High One.
Sister Moon and Stars who are precious, splendid, ride your glorious sky.
2. Brother Wind and Air that pervades, vary their moods to sustain all youve made.
Sister Water, useful and pure, lowly, freely sharing her life.
3. Through Brother Fire you brighten the night, strong and robust yet playful and bright.
Sister Earth, our mother who nurtures, feeding, yielding flower and herb.

SONG OF THANKSGIVING CANTO DE ACCIN DE GRACIAS


Theres a Wideness in Gods Mercy / Be Merciful

Ed Bolduc

Theres a wideness in Gods mercy Like the wideness of the sea;


Theres a kindness in Gods justice, Which is more than liberty.
There is plentiful redemption In the blood that has been shed;
There is joy for all the members In the sorrows of the Head.

Verse 2.


There is welcome for the sinner, And a promised grace made good;
There is mercy with the Savior; There is healing in Christs blood.
There is grace enough for thousands Of new worlds as great as this;
There is room for fresh creations In that upper home of bliss.

Verse 3.


For the love of God is broader Than the measures of the mind,
And the heart of the Eternal Is most wonderfully kind.
If our love were but more simple We would know the living Word,
And our lives would be thanksgiving In the kindness of our Lord.

Verse 4.


Theres a wideness in Gods mercy Like the wideness of the sea;


Theres a kindness in Gods justice, Which is more than liberty.
There is plentiful redemption In the blood that has been shed;
There is joy for all the members In the sorrows of the Head.

ENDOWMENT CONTRIBUTORS
The Religious Education Endowment Fund was established by the Office of Religious Education to support the ongoing
training and formation of religious education leaders, particularly by making scholarships available for Directors of
Religious Education, Adult Educators, Young Adults and Youth Ministers to pursue graduate studies. It is our hope that
every Director of Religious Education and Director of Youth Ministry will be given the opportunity to receive a masters
degree in Religious Education/Religious Studies.
Those who registered online could contribute to this Fund, as well as those who made an additional contribution through
mail-in registrations. As of January 25, 781 people responded with contributions totaling $12,301.01. We sincerely appreciate and acknowledge their contributions. Because of thoughtful contributions year after year, the Fund has passed the
$1 million mark and is currently enabled to offer financial assistance to 15 lay ministers involved in Parish Catechetical
Ministry and related areas in Youth, Young Adult and Adult Formation.
