Follow these guidelines to create your banner
The message in your banner must be in keeping with the Teaching of the Catholic Church.
- Include the name of your parish or organization and in general be a message of praise and worship
Banners may NOT:
- Include a political message or the endorsement of an individual
Please note: The leadership of the Eucharistic Congress Steering committee has the authority to reject a banner that does not conform to the above guidelines.
- Eucharistic Congress banners come in many shapes, sizes and colors. Many people will be far away from your banner and in order to make it readable, it should be BIG.
On the day of the Eucharistic Congress
- Banner carriers, please arrive at the assembly point on Tryon Street at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday.
- Banners are part of the procession that follows the Eucharist through the streets of Charlotte into the Convention Center.

- Inside the Convention Center, only the banners will process down the main aisle. All other participants will be directed to their seats by the ushers using the side aisles.
