Since it was first published in 1563, the Heidelberg Catechism has been cherished by Christians around the world. Its warm, pastoral summary of the holy gospel has guided generations of God's people, teaching them about their only true comfort in life and in death. On January 18-19, 2013, a conference will be hosted by CRTS at the Burlington Ebenezer Canadian Reformed church to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the Catechism and explore how this confessional treasure can continue to serve the church for generations to come.
