FAITH • FAMILY • FELLOWSHIP • FUN
Join thousands of Catholics from across western North Carolina as we celebrate the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. This year, our “diocesan family reunion” also commemorates the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Diocese of Charlotte. You won’t want to miss the celebration!
PRAYER FOR THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS
Who art really, truly and substantially

may everywhere be acknowledged
to the glory of God the Father.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, bless the Congress.
