Los Angeles Religious Educators Congress

Hold Firm ... Trust
Matente Firme ... ¡Confía!

Looking Forward to the Start of the LA Religious Educators Congress tomorrow. The 2011 Congress theme is highlighted above. Glenmary first started participating in this event last year. A little late but at least we are here - now two years in a row. Stop by booth #664 if you are here at the conference with us. Would love to meet you.

I think that events like this have three purposes:
First, to meet potential candidates for Glenmary Home Missioners.
Secondly to talk with teachers and give them materials to take back to their classroom where they can act as good promotes of Glenmary in the classrooms.
And Thirdly in order to share information about Glenmary's Religious education materials.
I think that the vocation seed needs to be planted in the home, and then watered and nurtured in school and church. None of it can be done without the Light of the world shining on the vocation seedlings as the pop out of the ground. So we thank God for our vocations and for all the wonderful people in our early life who helped us to recognize that call to serve.
