Welcome
Welcome to RECongress

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 2019 Los Angeles Religious Education Congress!

The theme that draws us together for the Adult Days of RECongress is “Thirsting
for Justice.” And of course, we hear in this theme Our Lord’s promise from his
Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.”
Righteousness in the Scriptures means “rightness” or justice. Things are righteous or
just when they are the way God wants them to be.

We are born with this thirst inside us – a thirst for holiness, for love and mercy, for
a society that reflects God’s beautiful intentions for creation. This is how God calls
us to live – to walk with Jesus and to grow in holiness, to seek his Kingdom through
works of justice for the poor and vulnerable.

What we are all thirsting for is Jesus Christ. We are like that woman from Samaria
who meets Jesus at the well and asks him: “Give me this water, that I may not
thirst.”

And Jesus longs to give us the gift of God, the living water that brings eternal life.
As we thirst, so does Jesus. His final words on the cross are words of desire: “I
thirst.”

I pray that these days will be a time of renewal for all of you. May you come to a
new awareness of how Jesus thirsts for your love and a new dedication to following
him in seeking holiness in your life and justice in our world.

In your prayers this weekend, please remember me and our ministry here in Los
Angeles. I entrust you all to the loving heart of Our Blessed Mother Mary.

Most Reverend José H. Gomez


Archbishop of Los Angeles

Welcome

Dear Friends in Christ,


It fills me with joy to welcome you to the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress
2019!
Growing up in California I have been quite used to efforts to conserve water. Water is a
precious resource and living through experiences of prolonged drought one can often be
left wondering if there will ever be a change, if anything will get better: Will there ever be
enough for everyone? We should always be good stewards of all the many blessings we
receive from God, which includes this magnificent planet. We also long for a day when
we don’t have to count every drop. This experience of shortage, of not having enough,
sets the context for our theme, “Thirsting for Justice.” It speaks of our limits: our failure
to trust in God’s providence, our failure to live justly with God and with our neighbors.
They also speak of God’s abundance: where there is fear and doubt, God brings faith and
hope; where there is longing for an end to suffering and injustice, God liberates us from
sin and death.
Jesus tells the Samaritan woman, “Whoever drinks the water I shall give will never
thirst.” We come to God, longing to be filled with his Holy Spirit, a spirit of peace, a
spirit of joy. We invite you to seek God, who satisfies every longing, here at the Religious
Education Congress. In our sessions, liturgies, time of prayer and being in community,
we open our hearts and, like an empty jug, await to be filled with the living water who is
Jesus Christ.
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 12 students to pursue a Master’s degree in Religious Education.
Your gift offering of $36,072 at the 2018 Congress Saturday night liturgies together with
registration contributions added $49,632.48 to this fund. We thank for your ongoing
generosity.
We look forward to seeing you here and sharing this blessed time together. Share the joy
and bring a friend. May God bless you abundantly.
Sincerely,

Fr. Chris Bazyouros


Senior Director, Office of Religious Education

Mis queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,


En nombre de toda la familia de Dios de la Arquidiócesis de Los Ángeles, ¡quiero darles la
bienvenida a nuestro Congreso de Educación Religiosa 2019!
El tema que nos reúne en los días del RECongress dedicados a los adultos es “Sed de
Justicia.” Y, por supuesto, en este tema escuchamos la promesa que nuestro Señor nos hace
en el Sermón de la Montaña: “Bienaventurados los que tienen hambre y sed de justicia.”
En las Escrituras, justicia quiere decir “rectitud” u honestidad. Las cosas son honestas o
simplemente justas cuando son como Dios quiere que sean.
Nacemos con una sed dentro de nosotros: la sed de santidad, de amor y de misericordia, la
sed de una sociedad que refleje las hermosas intenciones de Dios para la creación. Así es
como Dios nos llama a vivir: caminando con Jesús, creciendo en santidad, y buscando su
Reino a través de las obras de justicia para con los pobres y los vulnerables.
De lo que todos tenemos sed es de Jesucristo. Somos como la mujer de Samaria que se
encuentra con Jesús en el pozo y le pide: “Dame de esta agua, para no volver a tener sed.”
Y Jesús anhela darnos el don de Dios, el agua viva que nos da la vida eterna. Así como
nosotros tenemos sed, Jesús también la tiene. Sus últimas palabras en la cruz son palabras
que expresan un deseo: “Tengo sed.”
Le pido a Dios que estos días sean un tiempo de renovación para todos ustedes. Que sean
más conscientes de la sed que Jesús tiene de su amor y que renueven su deseo de seguirlo
en la búsqueda de la santidad en su vida y de la justicia en nuestro mundo.
En sus oraciones de este fin de semana, les pido que por favor recen por mí y por nuestro
ministerio aquí en la Arquidiócesis de Los Ángeles. Los encomiendo a todos al corazón
amoroso de Nuestra Santísima Madre María.
Sinceramente en Cristo,

+ Jose H. Gomez
Arzobispo de Los Ángeles

32 2019 Congreso de Educación Religiosa


bienvenidos

Español
Queridos amigos en Cristo,
¡Me llena de alegría darles la bienvenida al Congreso de Educación Religiosa de Los
Ángeles 2019!
El crecer en California me ha acostumbrado a los esfuerzos para conservar el agua. El agua
es un recurso precioso y el vivir sequías prolongadas nos hace preguntarnos a menudo si
habrá algún cambio, si algo mejorará: ¿Habrá suficiente para todos? Siempre debemos ser
buenos administradores de las numerosas bendiciones que recibimos de Dios, que incluye
este magnífico planeta. También anhelamos el día cuando no tengamos que contar cada gota.
Esta experiencia de escasez, de no tener suficiente, establece el contexto para nuestro tema,
“Sed de Justicia.” Se refiere a nuestros límites: nuestro fracaso en confiar en la providencia
de Dios, nuestro fracaso en vivir justamente con Dios y con nuestros vecinos. También se
refiere a la abundancia de Dios: donde hay temor y duda, Dios trae fe y esperanza; donde se
anhela el fin del sufrimiento y la injusticia, Dios nos libera del pecado y de la muerte.
Jesús le dice a la mujer samaritana: “El que beba del agua que yo le daré no volverá a tener
sed jamás.” Venimos a Dios, deseando ser llenados de su Espíritu Santo. Los invitamos a
buscar a Dios, que satisface todo anhelo, aquí en el Congreso de Educación Religiosa. En
nuestras sesiones, liturgias, tiempo de oración y de estar en comunidad, abrimos nuestros
corazones y, como una jarra vacía, esperamos ser llenados por el agua viva que es Jesucristo.
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 12 estudiantes para obtener su Maestría en Educación
Religiosa. Las donaciones dadas en las distintas liturgias del sábado durante el RECongress
del 2018 junto con sus donaciones de inscripción llegaron a $49,632.48. Les agradezco su
continua generosidad.
Muchas gracias por vuestro generoso apoyo al RECongress y participación en las
comunidades a través del ministerio. Que Dios los bendiga abundantemente.
Espero con entusiasmo poder saludarlos en el Congreso de Educación Religiosa 2019.
Sinceramente,

Rev. Christopher Bazyouros


Director Senior, Oficina de Educación Religiosa

Verses
1. Call us to be your compassion, Teach us the song of your love;
Give us hearts that sing, Give us deeds that ring, Make us ring with the song of your love.
2. Call us to learn of your mercy, Teach us the way of your peace;
Give us hearts that feel, Give us hands that heal, Make us walk in the way of your peace.
3. Call us to answer oppression, Teach us the fire of your truth;
Give us righteous souls, ’Til your justice rolls, Make us burn with the fire of your truth..
4. Call us to witness your Kingdom, Give us the presence of Christ;
May your holy light Keep us shining bright, Ever shine with the presence of Christ.

For the sake of my servant Jacob, and Israel my chosen,
I call you by your name, I surname you, though you do not know me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other; besides me there is no god.
I arm you, though you do not know me,
So that they may know, from the rising of the sun
And from the west, that there is no one besides me;
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
I form light and create darkness, I make weal and create woe;
I the Lord do all these things.
Shower, O heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness;
Let the earth open, that salvation may spring up, and let it cause righteousness
To sprout up also; I the Lord have created it.

the SANCTIFICATION OF HUMAN LABOR
A Friday, March 22, 2019 • 5:15 pm
Y Bishop John Stowe, presider

In the Gospel of today’s Mass, Jesus uses the very vivid image of a vineyard
to describe God’s plan. By speaking in this way, Jesus shows that humanity
was always meant to honor God by our labors. God desires to respond
by making human work an experience of his blessing.

We open our day with prayer and thanks to God! Our Saturday morning
Keynote Address will be situated within the context of Morning Praise.
With Scripture, movement and song (lead by Jesse Manibusan), we enter a
prayerful space to ask God to open our hearts and minds as our
Keynote speaker is presented. After the address, we close with prayer and song
as we ask the Spirit to make what we heard a call to proclaim God’s goodness.

A Gracious God Jesse Manibusan
Y 1. Lead us, Lord, into the desert; lead us through the wilderness.
Through this journey we will follow, for we long to see your face.
2. In this time of sacred struggle, in this time of sacrifice,
we rejoice, for we remember that you lead us into life. Refrain

3. Lord, we hunger for your presence; Lord, we’re thirsting for your grace.
When consuming all but you, Lord, all we gain is emptiness. Refrain
4. Teach us, Lord: who is our neighbor? Is it friend, or enemy?
When we welcome or condemn them, it is you, O let us see. Refrain

EUCHARISTIC LITURGY •
Honoring Our Ancestors in Faith
From The Black Culture Perspective
Saturday, March 23, 2019 • 5:15 pm
Bishop Fernand Cheri, presider

This liturgy began with a conversation about Servant of God Agustus Tolton,
the first African-American priest in the United States and the first to move
S toward sainthood. The conversation blossomed into delving more deeply into
A the black culture’s value of the elders and all who have gone before them,
T
especially those who endured such hardship and stayed faithful. At this Mass,
there will be a special emphasis on the ancestors of faith.

Verses
1. Boundless love was promised as your vow,
a promise from ancient time, that your love would be mine.
Before the mountains were designed, before the heavens were aligned,
your sweet voice awakened my name. You found me in my shame, and called me out of my pain.
2. Boundless love, embraces day and night. This grace I can’t comprehend, a love that has no end.
When storms arise you are near; when danger comes who shall fear?
You enfold me in your embrace. The vision of your face, no dream could ever replace.
3. Boundless love, receive my humble life, receive my soul all my days, that I may know your ways.
My song shall travel near and far, to claim the Beauty that you are;
words of truth and love are sown; that you, Most High, alone, are source and cornerstone.

Divisive distractions consume us like a wildfire, miedo y el incertidumbre. Las distracciones

incontrolable, mientras tenemos sed de justicia
y un deseo de cambiarse el corazón.)
Pre-Chorus 1
Where is civility, where is integrity or telling the truth?

We are thirst-ing for jus - tice.

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 12, 529 people responded with contributions totaling $7,590.54. 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.
