About the Eucharistic Congress
Pope John Paul II, in his Encyclical Letter, Ecclesia de Eucharistia, begins this important document by saying, “The Church draws her life from the Eucharist.” He goes on to write, “In a variety of ways she [the Church] joyfully experiences the constant fulfillment of the promise: ‘Lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age,' but in the Holy Eucharist, through the changing of bread and wine into the body and blood of the Lord, she [the Church] rejoices in this presence with unique intensity.”
A Eucharistic Congress is an opportunity for Catholics to “rejoice in this presence with unique intensity.” A Congress gathers Catholics from all walks of life, ethnicity, age and vocation for a moment to deepen their understanding of the Eucharist, to take place in this “thanksgiving” – the definition of Eucharist – and to fellowship.
During the Congress, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a diocesan-wide procession, attend Mass, participate in other devotional ceremonies like Stations of the Cross, spend time in adoration, go to reconciliation and listen to Catholic speakers who will bring a new dimension to Catholic teaching and understanding – all while enjoying fellowship with other Catholics.
