The Religious Education Congress website explains a bit more. As Fenris explained, it’s very con-like (and “a good time to be had, even for agnostic weirdos like me”).
Yumiko: Actually, their is a gathering that’s a lot like Catholicon. It’s called the Religious Education Congress, and it’s held in California in March. With exhibits, speakers, workshops, and concerts, it’s almost a con! (A reader named Fenris tipped us off!)
I printed out a few dozen pages of information from their website; check it out!
Enrico: Does this “Religious Education Congress” have merchandise, or just pages of information?
Yumiko: Um…just information.
Enrico: Then Catholicon’s better.
