LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF CONGRESS
We invite those of you who attended Congress 2010 to tell us about your experience, and how effective our efforts have been. We’d like to hear from you, especially if you would rate any event as “excellent” or “poor.” Please let us know the reasons for your evaluation at the end of the survey.

NOTE: Our online survey will be available only until March 24. For those who attended Congress, please take a few minutes and complete our online survey. Even if you have completed the paper version, we ask that, if possible, you complete the online survey as well. We can tally our information much sooner using the online method. By taking the online version of the survey, you greatly aid our staff.

Pope Benedict XVI's recently stated that Catholics should use technology to evangelize today's "digital continent." His message highlights how the Web has evolved into a continent of people. This year we were thrilled to be able to share a little of the Congress experience with the "digital continent" from our live Congress webcast! We had a total of 4,014 viewers for this first-event online event.

LOST & FOUND
Did you leave something behind at Congress? We seem to have some "leftovers!" Each year after our Religious Education Congress event there are a great many unclaimed items glasses, bags, books, jackets that end up in our Lost and Found. Please contact the Congress Office with what you seem to be missing, and we'll see if it's among our Lost and Found items. You can find contact information online on our Lost and Found page. All items not claimed by April 15, 2010 will be donated to a charitable organization.

CARDINAL CHAT TRANSCRIPT
Each year from the Religious Education Congress, Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony conducts an online chat session. The first Cardinal chat took place in 1996. This was the Cardinal's 14th annual chat session originating from the Tech Center at Congress. You can find the transcript to this chat at www.RECongress.org/chat2010.htm

For the past few years, preceding his nationwide chats, the Cardinal has added an additional chat session with students from different schools within the Los Angeles Archdiocese. This year's online school chat was with students from St. John Chrysostom School in Inglewood.

 

CONGRESS RECORDINGS
If you're still thinking about that Congress session you missed or wish you could have shared a talk with a friend, it's not too late! There were 250 Congress workshops recorded by CSC Digital Media that are available on Audio CDs. You can order any of these sessions from this year as well as both cassette tapes and audio CDs from prior years.
