The Congress will begin the day with Mass presided by Cardinal Se├ín P. O'Malley, OFM with music by the Archdiocesan Black Catholic Choir.  Over 24 workshops in English, Portuguese and Spanish will be offered throughout the day. The keynote speaker at the Archdiocesan Catechetical Congress will be Bishop Richard Malone.
