Improving religious educa- - tion for Catholics of-all nes was a major concern of the del- egates of Synod '93, Corr noted.

He said he had also heard an additional concern, "for contin- uing adult formation programs and for involving parents in the religious formation of their children." Corr said he was working to develop a viable plan to bring about the kind of religious edu- cation development pastors and parish life coordinators grams. And now, because the generosity of the anony- mous donor, "it includes the necessary resources to carry it outf Corr said he expected 25 to 30 catechetieal leaders.could be receiving the first scholar- ships, starting as soon as tliis summer.
