This weekend, CNEWA heads west: for the first time. We’ll be hosting a booth at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress in Anaheim, California — billed as the largest gathering of Roman Catholics in the United States.
While most of the attendees are from California and the western U.S., the annual event attracts an estimated 40,000 people from as far away as the United Kingdom and Australia. The congress features speakers, liturgies, workshops and over 200 exhibitors — including this year, CNEWA.
Among other things, it’s a great opportunity to just get out and meet folks — and help introduce people to CNEWA and our work around the world.
We will be at the congress from Friday through Sunday, at booth #780. I’ll be there, along with our development associate Debora Stonitsch and our external affairs officer, Rev. Elias D. Mallon, S.A., Ph.D.
Stop by and say hello!
