Gathering for Strength!
One of the great strengths the Church in the United States is seen in meetings, conferences, conventions, and gatherings that celebrate the catechetical ministry. Many such meetings occur at the diocesan or regional level. At these meetings, teachers and DREs get the chance to hear speakers, see displays of catechetical materials, worship together, and experience the joy of the ministry they share. There are two catechetical meetings—one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast—that draw people from around the region and the country. In February, Baltimore hosts the Mid-Atlantic Congress in that focuses on the formation of leaders in the Church. The Los Angeles Religious Education Congress—the largest in the land—in March that draws nearly 40 thousand participants.
