The Western Conference of Catholic Religious Educators seeks to ensure the opportunity of ongoing catechesis for all. Its purpose is to provide a forum for sharing the efforts of all religious educators in Western and Northern Canada.
This forum is designed to facilitate personal growth in faith and knowledge through the exchange of ideas and resources. It also offers support and cooperation in dealing with common concerns related to catechesis in Western Canada and the Northern Territories. Additionally, the conference provides a liaison with the Bishops of Canada.
The WCCRE intentionally moves the conference throughout the western provinces as an opportunity to spread the beauty and wonder of the Teaching Church.
