In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of an abundance of care for the safety of our parishioners, planners, speakers, and visitors, the Eucharistic Congress for 2020 will not be hosted at the Charlotte Convention Center this year.
Bishop Peter J. Jugis encourages pastors to reserve the dates – September 11, 12, and 13 – for each parish to celebrate, in a special way, their love for the Most Holy Eucharist.
The Eucharistic Congress Planning Committee will be offering suggestions and resources for the faithful of the Diocese to participate in Eucharistic devotion in their own parishes and homes. In this way, the Eucharistic Congress for 2020 will still take place, in our own homes and parishes.
For more information, see the letter below from Bishop Peter Jugis, and stay tuned for updates as the Committee develops resources.
