Next year’s Religious Education Congress (REC) will be held virtually due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles announced this week.

“COVID-19 has changed many of the traditional ways of gathering,” said Sister Rosalia Meza, VDMF, senior director of the archdiocese’s Office of Religious Education (ORE) in a June 29 letter. “After consultation, prayer, and discernment, we [the RE Congress team and Archbishop José H. Gomez] came to the decision that the Religious Education Congress 2021 will be a virtual event.”

“Congress” is considered the largest annual gathering of Catholics in the United States, offering a series of workshops, liturgies, and opportunities to network with other Catholic ministries and professionals. It has been held at the Anaheim Convention Center since 1970.
