WELCOME

WELCOME TO CONGRESS

My dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

On behalf of the whole family of God here in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, I want
to welcome you to our 2018 Religious Education Congress!

This year’s Congress has the theme of “Rise Up!” / “¡Levántate!” / “Hãy Đứng Lên!”

And this year, we want to reflect on our faith in the Resurrection. We stand this year
with the figure of Saint Martha, the sister of Mary and Lazarus.

We recall her pain and sorrow at the death of her brother. We all know the story; we
hear it year after year in the liturgy. Jesus comes to their home after Lazarus had died
and he declares: “I am the resurrection and the life.” And then he asks Martha: “Do
you believe this?”

It is a powerful moment and we remember Martha’s confession of faith. In fact, to
my mind it sounds very similar to the confession of faith that Saint Peter made. She
says: “Yes, Lord, I have come to believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God.”

In this beautiful confession of faith in the resurrection, Saint Martha shows us the
purpose of our own discipleship. We are called to bring our brothers and sisters to the
knowledge that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, who died and is alive for evermore.
We are called to bring them to know the Love that is stronger than death.

I pray that these will be days of grace for you in which you are able to draw closer
to our Risen Lord and that you will be renewed in your commitment to proclaim the
Good News of his Resurrection.

I welcome you and entrust each of you to the maternal protection of our Blessed Mother
Mary, Queen of Angels!

Most Reverend Jose H. Gomez
Archbishop of Los Angeles

2 2018 Religious Education Congress
WELCOME

General Info
Dear friends in the Lord,

In the days of January, I was one more time at the Anaheim Convention Center for the National
Association of Music Merchants. As I was listening to all of the music and seeing many of those
involved in music ministry from around the world, and so many involved in the production of
music, I was thinking of all of our gatherings here at the Convention Center, especially as I begin
my sixth year as the Diocesan Bishop. I look forward to welcoming you, along with our two new
auxiliary Bishops, Bishop Timothy Freyer and Bishop Thomas Thanh Nguyen, back to Anaheim
and Orange County.

So, welcome once again to the Diocese of Orange as we join once again with the Archdiocese
of Los Angeles and our many visitors and pilgrims, and so many in ministry who come to join with
us these days of the Congress. It is truly an expression of the Universal Church! I also hope that
you have the chance to visit, while you are here, the Christ Cathedral campus. We are making great
progress on the renovation of the Cathedral building itself, and now have a “hold the date” for
its dedication: July 17, 2019. On our Christ Cathedral campus, we already have an average Mass
attendance each Sunday of 12,000 with Mass in four languages: Spanish, Chinese (Mandarin),
English and Vietnamese. We have a wonderful staff of docents, headed by Mrs. Trudy Mazzarella,
ready to welcome you. I look forward to seeing you there, even as I know that I will see some of
you at the Diocese of Orange, and Orange Catholic Foundation booth in the Convention Center.

Having had a number of ministerial experiences as a Church musician, in parishes and
seminaries, and the Casa Santa Maria of the North American College, and knowing the theme
of this year’s Congress of “Rise Up,” I was thinking of all the music and various hymns that I
remember: “Rise Up Jerusalem,” “I Will Raise Him Up” (from I am the Bread of Life) and “I Will
Rise Again.” I also just finished rereading Saint John Paul II’s autobiography “Rise, Let Us Be On
Our Way,” which certainly carries this theme as well.

I hope and pray this time together will help us to rise and go forth once again as “Missionary Disciples”!
And, not only ourselves, but those whom we encounter (in the “Providence of God”) on the way!

As I just mentioned and wish to reiterate, I hope to be around most of the weekend and personally
greet as many of you as possible. Please stop by and visit the booth in the exhibit hall for the Diocese
of Orange. See you there!

Let us praise the Lord for this weekend and pray for each other constantly.

Gratefully yours in the Lord,

WELCOME

Blessings and greetings to all of you and welcome to Congress 2018!
I am filled with joy to extend to you this invitation to join us for the Los Angeles Religious
Education Congress held in Anaheim. We very much look forward to gathering with you again
and celebrating our faith while we are challenged to live the Gospel.
As I am writing this letter, so many communities around the world are suffering greatly,
especially from natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and fire. As devastating
as those events may be, they do not triumph over the Spirit of God who stirs in the hearts of all
people a desire to serve those in need and for those who are suffering, the strength to rebuild.
Our theme for Congress 2018 is “Rise Up” and it is perfectly suited to these times. Drawn from
the readings of the fifth Sunday of Lent which sees Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead, we
realize that the mission of Christ is to restore all to the fullness of life in God, to hear him call
our name and beckon us out of our tombs.
Come and hear the voice of Jesus calling you to a more abundant life through the many
conferences, liturgies, entertainment and resources that offered throughout the weekend. Come
and be replenished deep in your spirit and be challenged to live as a disciple fully alive in
Christ.
Together with all the many activities, you will opportunities to encounter God in Sacred Space
in which you are invited to let your life, like prayer, rise up before God like incense (Ps 142).
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
11 students to pursue a Master’s degree in Religious Education. Your gift offering of $34,545
at the 2017 Congress Saturday night liturgies together with registration contributions added
$47,211 to this fund. We thank for your ongoing generosity.
Thank you so much for your gracious support of Congress and participation in your
communities through ministry. Let us hear the cry of our brothers and sisters in need and not
remain indifferent in our tombs but rise up in the spirit of Christ to assist them.
I look forward to greeting you at the Religious Education Congress 2018.
Sincerely,

Fr. Christopher Bazyouros
Director, Office of Religious Education

A CONVERSATION WITH MARIA >
Convention North 154 (lower level) – 7:30 pm
Join us for a lively conversation with Maria Shriver,
mother of four, award-winning journalist and
producer. Congress speaker Brandi Milloy will
engage Ms. Shriver in a discussion about her new
book, “I’ve Been Thinking...: Reflections, Prayers,
and Meditations for a Meaningful Life.” This first-
come, first-served event will inspire all to become
“architects for change.” A book signing will follow
the conclusion of this engaging conversation.

ART EXHIBIT >

The paintings of artist Angelica Sotiriou Rausch de-
rive much of their imagery from biblical narratives,
Scripture and her prayer life. Her ministry includes
a dedication to teaching visual arts to communities

studio/gallery in San Pedro and offers showings to
late career artists and to those who have not had the
opportunity to share their works in a gallery venue.

who have been able to rise above their suffering,
coming out of their tombs and letting go of that
which binds them. What is binding you?

What is the Goal of the V Encuentro?
Over 160 dioceses across the U.S. have engaged in the Fifth National Encuentro of
Hispanic/Latino Ministry. The V Encuentro initiative is a process of evangelization,
consultation and mission that was officially launched last year to discern ways for the
Church in the United States to better respond to the ever-growing Hispanic presence,
and to help Hispanics Catholics to strengthen their Christian identity and their response
as missionary disciples for the entire Church.

Who Participates in the V Encuentro?
All leaders in (arch)dioceses, parishes, lay ecclesial movements and other Catholic
organizations and institutions are invited to participate by encountering Hispanic/Latino
Catholics, particularly those living in the periphery through the missionary process of
evangelization and consultation of the V Encuentro.

Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,
Bienvenidos al Congreso de Educación Religiosa de la Arquidiócesis de los Ángeles
2018. Rezo para que éste sea un tiempo de oración y renovación, así como tiempo de
acercamiento al amor de Jesucristo.
El tema del Congreso este año es “¡Confía!” Esta es la invitación del Evangelio – la
hermosa invitación de nuestro Señor a confiar en la amorosa providencia de Dios.
“Mirad las aves del cielo, que no siembran, ni siegan, ni recogen en graneros; y
vuestro Padre celestial las alimenta” (Mateo 6:26).
¡Dios proveerá! Él está a cargo de la historia y está a cargo de nuestras vidas. Esto
significa que le importamos a Dios. Cada uno de nosotros le importa.
Jesús ha dado su vida – él ha muerto y resucitado – por amor a todos nosotros. Ahora,
Él vive y camina con nosotros en nuestra jornada de vida. Nos muestra el camino y
nos guía en la misión que nos ha encomendado como sus discípulos. La misión de
amor y servicio.
¡Tenemos que confiar en el plan de Dios para nuestras vidas! Necesitamos confiar
en su providencia y en su amor. Debemos ayudar a nuestros hermanos y hermanas
a descubrir el hermoso plan de Dios para su creación. Este es el gran mensaje de
esperanza que estamos llamados a enseñar y proclamar en la iglesia.
Así que rezo para que este sea un gran fin de semana para todos, una excelente
oportunidad para crecer en el conocimiento de nuestra fe Católica y en el amor
y devoción al Señor a quien servimos en nuestra vida diaria a en nuestro trabajo,
ministerio, familia y vida pública.
Yo los encomiendo al tierno cuidado de nuestra Santísima Madre María, Nuestra
Señora de la Providencia – que ella nos ayude a caminar con confianza en nuestro
camino de fe.
Sinceramente en Cristo,

+ Jose H. Gomez
Arzobispo de Los Ángeles

BIENVENIDOS

¡Bendiciones y saludos a todos ustedes y bienvenidos al Congreso 2018!
Me siento lleno de alegría de extender a ustedes esta invitación a unirse a nosotros para el
Congreso de Educación Religiosa de Los Ángeles celebrado en Anaheim. Estamos muy
entusiasmados de reunirnos de nuevo y celebrar nuestra fe mientras enfrentamos el desafío de vivir
el Evangelio.
Mientras escribo esta carta, muchas comunidades alrededor del mundo están sufriendo mucho,
especialmente de desastres naturales tales como inundaciones, huracanes, terremotos e incendios.
Por más devastadores que sean esos acontecimientos no triunfan sobre el espíritu de Dios, que
despierta en los corazones de todos nosotros el deseo de servir a los necesitados, y para los que
sufren, la fuerza es reconstruir. Nuestro tema para el Congreso 2018 es “¡Levántense!” y se adapta
perfectamente a estos tiempos. Jesucristo resucitando a Lázaro de entre los muertos, nos damos
cuenta de que la misión de Cristo es devolver a todos a la plenitud de la vida en Dios; oírle llamar
nuestro nombre y llamarnos de nuestras tumbas.
Ven y escucha la voz de Jesús llamándote a una vida más abundante a través de las muchas
conferencias, liturgias, capacitación y recursos durante el fin de semana. Vengan y sean
reabastecidos profundamente en su espíritu y sean desafiados a vivir como una vida plena en
Cristo.
Junto con todas las actividades tendrás la oportunidad de encontrar a Dios en el Espacio Sagrado,
al cual estás invitado a dejar que tu vida, como la oración, se levante ante Dios como incienso
(Salmo 142).
Como ustedes recordaran, se ha establecido la Fundación Monetaria de Educación Religiosa en
la Arquidiócesis de Los Ángeles para la formación y educación de los Directores de Educación
Religiosa, Formadores de Adultos, de Jóvenes y Ministerios Juveniles. Actualmente este fondo
apoya a 11 estudiantes para obtener su Maestría en Educación Religiosa. Las donaciones dadas
en las distintas liturgias del sábado durante el Congreso del 2017 junto con sus donaciones de
inscripción llegaron a $47,211. Les agradezco su continua generosidad.
Muchas gracias por vuestro generoso apoyo al Congreso y participación en las comunidades a
través del ministerio. Escuchemos el grito de nuestros hermanos y hermanas necesitados, y no
permanezcamos indiferentes en nuestras tumbas, sino que levantémonos en el espíritu de Cristo
para ayudar.
Espero con entusiasmo poder saludarlos en el Congreso de Educación Religiosa 2018.
Sinceramente,

Rev. Christopher Bazyouros
Director, Oficina de Educación Religiosa

34 2018 Congreso de Educación Religiosa

EUCHARISTIC LITURGY •
ST. PATRICK: THE IMMIGRANT SAINT
Saturday, March 17, 2018 • 5:15 pm
Rev. David Loftus, presider

Although many legends abound concerning St. Patrick, a study of his life reveals a true
S journey of “rising up” to overcome many challenges and return with a heart on fire for
A Christ. St. Patrick was a victim of human trafficking and slavery of his time and was an
T immigrant to his beloved Ireland, where he spent his life evangelizing and catechizing the
people there. This Mass recognizes that there are many people today who are suffering in
U
modern-day slavery and human trafficking and we must seek their freedom; that those
R who migrate to our shores can bring blessings with them.

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 Master’s
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 February 1, 708 people responded with contributions totaling $10,980.48. We sincerely ap-
preciate 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 11 lay ministers involved in Parish Catechetical
Ministry and related areas in Youth, Young Adult and Adult Formation.
