The National Catholic Reporter has an exhibit booth at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress through Sunday. The congress, which started in 1967, is the largest gathering of Catholics in the United States. Attendance for the three-day event is expected to be more than 24,000 people.
NCR Bertelsen intern Porsia Tunzi is covering the event, and Vatican correspondent John Allen will give two workshops, one on religious freedom and the other on trends in the global church.
Celebration, a worship resource and NCR sister publication, shares booth 682. If you plan on attending the congress, stop by to meet staff, get a special subscription discount and pick up some fun giveaways.
