Join Our Online Conversation at RE Congress

February 22, 2017

Every year, as many as 40,000 Catholics attend the Religious Education Conference in Anaheim sponsored by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

If you’re lucky enough to be there, please stop by the Catholic Legislative Network booth (#351) and say hello.  The staff would be very pleased to meet you.

If you can’t be there, you can still join our on-line conversation about Faith in the Public Square that we will conduct throughout the three days of the Congress.

Starting around noon on Friday, we’ll be asking people to give us their thoughts to a variety of questions about policy and faith (see below.)   Participation is simple:  Go to to see the current question.  You can respond in one of three ways:

  1. Do so right on the webpage
  2. Text CaCathConf to 22-333 and enter a response
  3. Finally, you can also tweet your response to #CaCathConf. 

Answer as many questions as you’d like throughout the weekend.   The responses will be shown live during the three days of the Congress and can be viewed on at any time. 

We hope you will participate.  Here are some of the questions our readers and Congress visitors will discuss over the weekend:

  • What can we do as individuals do to promote respect and civility in our public discourse?
  • What is the most important “Catholic” story not being covered in the secular media?
  • What is the most important policy conversation that should be going on in Sacramento today?
  • What is the most important policy conversation that should be going on in Washington today?
  • Why or why not do you engage in the political process?
  • How should we welcome the stranger?
  • What does preferential option for the poor mean to you?
  • What is the best thing we as Catholics can do to promote the life and dignity or our fellow human beings?
