Archdiocesan Catechetical Congress Has Been Moved

September 13, 2006

The Archdiocesan Catechetical Congress, usually held for the upper counties at Mt. St. Mary's College, Newburgh, and scheduled for Oct. 7, will take place this year at a new site: Monroe-Woodbury High School, 155 Dunderberg Road, Central Valley, NY 10917. The site was changed because there is a large construction project at Mt. St. Mary College.

Those who have already registered for the Oct. 7 Congress, along with workshop presenters and exhibitors, will receive letters and directions to Monroe-Woodbury High School. For those who are planning to register on the day of the Congress, the doors of Monroe-Woodbury will open at 8:15 a.m. Tickets are $35.00 per person at the door. Refreshments will be available for purchase.

The Bronx Catechetical Congress, scheduled for Oct. 21, will take place as usual at Cardinal Spellman High School, One Cardinal Spellman Place.

The theme for both congresses is: "Who Do You Say That I Am?" More than 57 workshops will be offered in English and 43 in Spanish. Catechetical leaders, catechists, adult faith formation teams, RCIA teams, youth ministers, Catholic School teachers and principals, clergy, and other interested adults are welcome.
