Banner carriers: Please arrive at the assembly point on Tryon Street by 8:30 a.m. on Saturday. (Banner and Banner Carrier Instructions)
Banners are part of the procession that follows the Eucharist through the streets of Charlotte into the Convention Center. When the banner representing your parish or organization passes by, join in the procession!
Inside the Convention Center, only the banners will process down the main center aisle. Ushers will direct all other people to their seats using the side aisles.
Banner carriers: Deliver your banner stand to Hall A of the Charlotte Convention Center anytime Friday or early Saturday morning. After processions, use any available stand for your banner.
Remember to take your banner and stand with you at the end of the day.
