2017 Congress cover small.png

​​​​​The primary purpose of this Regional Congress is to support the formation of adults throughout our region, especially our Religious Education catechists, Catholic school catechists, and parish ministers. 

This past year, the San Fernando Regional Congress served over 700 participants onsite at Bishop Alemany High School.  Inviting dedicated presenters who provide workshops in catechesis, theology, scripture, spirituality and other related fields accomplishes this goal.  Our theme challenges us to focus the workshops on our response to the Sunday readings as they pertain to our lives. This year our Regional Congress will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2017. I'm sure you will find just what you are looking for to inspire you and help you grow in your faith and ministries!

The fingerprinting is for everyone 18 yrs and older who will be volunteering at your parishes in any ministry.
