WELCOME TO CONGRESS
WELCOME
March 2015
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Welcome to the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress 2015! I am happy
you have chosen to join us to take this opportunity to know Jesus better, and to
grow in your faith.
The theme for this year’s Congress, “SEE,” is taken from the beautiful story in
St. John’s Gospel about the blind man who is healed and also receives the gift
of faith.
Pope Francis, speaking of this passage, says it is the story of our lives, too. We
too, he says, must “open ourselves to the light of Christ in order to bear fruit
in our lives ... so that, as St. Paul reminds us, we may act as ‘children of light,’
with humility, patience and mercy.”
This year, we must also take a moment to recognize the many years of service
that Sr. Edith Prendergast, R.S.C. has given to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles
and to the Religious Education Congress. It will be hard for all of us to see her
go, but I’d like to thank her for her generosity and dedication over the years,
and to wish her well in whatever the Lord has prepared for her in the future.
I pray that your participation in these days of formation, fellowship, prayer,
and worship will deepen your understanding of our Catholic faith and enrich
your relationship with Jesus Christ, so that He may be always the center of
your lives and ministry.
I entrust our time together to the Blessed Virgin Mary and ask God to bless
you abundantly throughout this weekend.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend José H. Gomez
Archbishop of Los Angeles

WELCOME
Dear Friends,
Once again it is my privilege and joy to extend to you a heartfelt welcome to Congress 2015.
Each year you bless us with your presence, your enthusiasm and your ongoing commitment to
share the Good News of our rich Catholic story and traditions.
The theme chosen for Congress 2015 – “See” – inspired by the blind man’s extraordinary
encounter with Jesus (John 9:1-41) challenges us to See anew, to peer beneath the surface and
see more deeply and broadly. We are invited to open wide not only our physical eyes, but also
the eyes of the heart, the eyes of our memory and perceive God’s presence in all of life, in joy,
in pain, in struggle.
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 master’s degree in Religious Education. Your gift offering at the 2014
Congress Saturday night liturgies together with registration contributions added $50,256 to this
fund. We thank for your ongoing generosity.
The amazing and ever-growing variety of workshops, liturgies, entertainment opportunities
and resources provided throughout the weekend are wells of enrichment and spiritual growth
for you and for your communities of faith. Come and be inspired, stretched and renewed by the
wisdom and the insights shared by national and international speakers.
In the midst of the many activities offered, there is also opportunity to spend time in the quiet
atmosphere of Sacred Space, walk the Labyrinth, linger at the Art Exhibit area and avail of the
sacrament of reconciliation.
It has been a great privilege and blessing for me to direct Congress with the support of great
staff and volunteers for the past 27 years. As I prepare to retire and take time for sabbatical, I
want to express my deepest gratitude to each of you for your remarkable dedication, faithful
support and your passion to bring the vision of the gospel into every sector of the human race.
You will always be in my thoughts and prayer as I cherish great memories of this marvelous
gathering.
Again, I thank you for your openness to the life-changing light of Christ and I look forward to
greeting you at Congress 2015.
Sincerely,
Sr. Edith Prendergast, RSC
Director, Office of Religious Education

2015 Religious Education Congress
IN APPRECIATION
General Info
The Staff, Volunteers and Friends of the
Office of Religious Education wish
Sr. Edith Prendergast, RSC
abundant blessings in her retirement.
We are grateful for her 28 years
of dedicated service.
Have the courage for a new approach to time;
Allow it to slow until you find freedom
To draw alongside the mystery you hold
And befriend your own beauty of soul.
Now is the time to enjoy your heart’s desire,
To live the dreams you’ve waited for,
To awaken the depths beyond your work

Come Celebrate “The Rosary with St. James”
Come join David Haas in praying a new and contemporary path with the Rosary –
through a new set of mysteries focusing on discipleship. Through song and wisdom
from St. James and others from the cloud of witnesses, we will begin our final day
of Congress drawing up a beloved devotion pointing us toward action. Bring your
rosary if you have one – if not, we will have one for you!
Arena – 8:00 am
Bishop Kevin Vann, presider
We share the opportunity to gather as a community of faith to give praise
and thanks. Bishop Kevin Vann of the Diocese of Orange, Calif., will
preside. Nourished by Word and sacrament, we go forth with “eyes
wide open” to see signs of God in us and around us.
Vann
Convention Ballroom AB – 8:30 am
“Taste and See the Goodness of the Lord” Has the mystery of faith become a bit too mysterious? Do your parishioners’ eyes glaze over when you try to explain what we believe?
Macalintal
Look no further for an answer than your baptism when all the baptized
received the ability to see the mystery and goodness of God right in front of us.
Rediscover this power and learn how to use it to help others really see God’s presence in their daily lives.

BIENVENIDOS AL CONGRESO
BIENVENIDOS
Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas en Cristo,
¡Bienvenidos al Congreso 2015! Me alegra que estén aquí, aprovechando esta
oportunidad para conocer mejor a Jesús y para crecer en su fe.
El tema del Congreso este año, VER, está tomado de la bella historia del Evangelio
de San Juan sobre el ciego que fue curado y además recibió el don de la fe.
El Papa Francisco, hablando sobre este pasaje, dice que esta es también la historia
de nuestras vidas. Nos dice que nosotros también 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.”
También queremos aprovechar esta oportunidad para expresar nuestra gratitud a la
Hna. Edith Prendergast, R.S.C. por todos sus años de servicio a la Arquidiócesis
de Los Ángeles y al Congreso de Educación Religiosa. Le decimos un afectuoso
adiós, agradeciéndole por su generosa y dedicada entrega a lo largo de los años y
le pedimos al Señor que la siga bendiciendo en el futuro.
Rezo para que su participación en estos días de formación, fraternidad, oración
y alabanza los ayude comprender la fe Católica de manera más profunda y
enriquezca su relación con Jesucristo, para que así, Él siempre sea el centro de sus
vidas y ministerio.
Encomiendo estos días a la Santísima Virgen María y pido a Dios que los bendiga
abundantemente a lo largo del fin de semana.
Sinceramente en Cristo,
+ José H. Gomez
Arzobispo de Los Ángeles

BIENVENIDOS
Queridas amigas y amigos:
Nuevamente es para mí un privilegio darles una cordial bienvenida al Congreso 2015. Cada año
nos bendicen con su presencia, su entusiasmo y compromiso constante de compartir la Buena
Nueva de nuestra rica historia y tradición católica.
El tema escogido para este Congreso del 2015 – “Ver” – está inspirado en el encuentro
extraordinario del ciego con Jesús (Juan 9:1-41) el cual nos reta a nuevamente Ver por debajo de
la superficie, a Ver más profundamente y ampliamente. Nos invita a no solo abrir nuestros ojos
físicos, sino también los ojos del corazón, los ojos de nuestros recuerdos y percibir la presencia de
Dios en todos los aspectos de la vida, en la alegría, en el dolo y en las penas.
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 18 estudiantes para obtener su Maestría en Educación Religiosa. Las donaciones dadas
en las distintas liturgias del sábado durante el Congreso del 2014 junto con sus donaciones de
inscripción llegaron a $50,256. Les agradezco su continua generosidad.
El creciente y asombroso número de conferencias, liturgias, oportunidades de entretenimiento
y recursos disponibles durante el fin de semana son fuente de enriquecimiento y crecimiento
espiritual para ustedes y sus comunidades de fe. Vengan, inspírense, crezcan y renuévense con la
sabiduría y el conocimiento que comparten los conferencistas nacionales e internacionales.
Dentro de todas las actividades ofrecidas, siempre existe la oportunidad de pasar un momento de
silencio y tranquilidad en el Espacio Sagrado, caminar el Laberinto, disfrutar de la exposición de
arte y celebrar el Sacramento de Reconciliación.
Durante estos últimos veintiocho años ha sido para mí un gran privilegio y bendición el dirigir el
Congreso con el apoyo de un excelente personal y voluntarios. Mientras me preparo para jubilarme
y tomar un sabático, quiero expresar mi más profunda gratitud a cada uno de ustedes por su
extraordinaria dedicación, su fiel apoyo y su pasión para traer la visión del evangelio a cada sector
de la raza humana. Siempre estarán en mis pensamientos y oraciones, mientras atesoro bellos
recuerdos de este maravillo encuentro.
Nuevamente, les doy las gracias por su apoyo y abrir su vida a la luz transformadora de Cristo
mientras guían a otros a Ver las maravillas de la presencia sanadora de Dios.
Espero saludarlos en el Congreso del 2015.
Sinceramente,
Hermana Edith Prendergast, RSC
Directora de la Oficina de Educación Religiosa

PRELUDE ♦ PRELUDIO
I Will Lift My Eyes
1. It is time for me to move from my shelter of safety,
to sail as a pilgrim over the waves of the sea.
It is time to be still and to seek the son of Mary,
time to rest, time to leave behind my fears.
Tony Alonso
Arena
2. And I will not fear the storm, though it rages around me,
for slowly I am learning to place my trust in you,
to forgive every hurt and to loosen every burden,
to let go and to follow where you lead.
3. Though I know you have prepared a path for me to follow,
I’ll never know for certain that I follow where you lead.
Still I trust that my desire to please you will guide me;
and I trust that you will keep me from harm.
4. I may stumble, I may fall, and get lost on the journey;
and my path will surely lead me to the shadow of death.
Yet I will not fear the storm, for you are ever with me,
never leaving me to face my fears alone.

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.
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.
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.

See Through the Eyes of Love
Verse 1
Go be the light of Christ,
give the blind new sight,
spread the Gospel with your life.
Go where you don’t want to go,
beyond the status quo,
to the suffering and the poor.
Go forth in word and deed,
and help another…

Sé la luz de Dios,
abre ojos a los demás
y la Buena Nueva anunciarás.
Ve por lados oscurecidos
más allá de lo establecido;
hacia los que sufren ten piedad.
En palabra y obra ve
a ayudar al otro ver:

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
