FAITH • FAMILY • FELLOWSHIP • FUN
The Diocese of Charlotte Eucharistic Congress is an event like no other!
Part worship experience, part diocesan “family reunion,” the annual Eucharistic Congress is an opportunity to deepen our faith and be inspired by Christ’s love for us.
Charlotte Bishop Peter Jugis notes there is an integral connection between the love of Christ and the Eucharist: “The Holy Eucharist is the sacrament of Christ’s great love for us, a love which He showed us by His sacrifice on the cross for our salvation. Christ is really present in the Holy Eucharist, and through the Eucharist He strengthens our charity.”
Explore this website for event details, and bring your family and friends. There is something for everyone!
Let us gather together to encounter Jesus in the Eucharist and feel His Presence among us.
