A Catholic journalist's experience at the Religious Education Congress

The excellent Catholic journalist and author Donna Steichen attended Cardinal Mahony's Religious Education Congress in 2006, and you can click on this post's title to see what she had to say about it.

After doing that, please resolve to set aside a little of your time on Saturday, March 1, to help perform a spiritual work of mercy outside the REC. From 9 a.m. to about 6 p.m. that day, Concerned Roman Catholics of America (CRCOA) will hand out flyers that warn attendees, many of them uninformed or misinformed, about problematic speakers inside.

But CRCOA is not a giant group, and they need your help. It will be a good Lenten practice for you to be there -- and for an hour or two, or more if you can. The more leafleters who show up, the more souls can be reached.

You'll meet good people, and you might be surprised by the number of priests and even a bishop or two who will thank you for being there.

The Congress is at the Anaheim Convention Center, 800 West Katella Ave., Anaheim, CA on the south side of Katella between Katella and Euclid.

CRCOA says:

"Please let us know if you or anyone you know are planning to join us, because this will help us to determine how many flyers we need to have printed. We very much need a volunteer who speaks fluent Spanish!

"We will meet outside the main ticket entrance. If we are chased from there, we will be on Katella Blvd. where all passing cars will be able to see us!

"For further information, call CRCOA at: 714-491-2284, E-mail us at: crcoa@earthlink.net, fax us at: 714-772-5075, or go to our Website at: crcoa.org
"God bless, Yours in Their Hearts, Kenneth Fisher, Founder & Director, Concerned Roman Catholics of America."

I plan to be out there handing out flyers this year. No WREC for me this year.
