Relevant Radio Contributors to Present at Religious Education Congress

Each year the Archdiocese of Los Angeles hosts the Religious Education Congress, a Catholic formation event that this year is expected to draw 40,000 from around the country and around the world. This year’s Congress will take place March 16-18 in Anaheim, CA and the theme is ‘Rise Up!’

Relevant Radio® will be at the Religious Education Congress as an exhibitor and many of the speakers are regular Relevant Radio guests and contributors. With 185 speakers offering workshops, it may be difficult to choose which workshop to attend. Below is a list of Relevant Radio guests and contributors and the workshops they will be offering workshops at this year’s Religious Education Congress.

If you will be attending the conference, we encourage you to attend our contributors’ workshops. If you will not be attending the conference, share this list with your friends so they can make the most out of this exciting event.
