This is a parish resource page to help Eucharistic Congress (EC) Parish Contacts (usually a parish staff member or a lay volunteer), as they assist their Pastor and parish in prayerfully preparing for the upcoming Eucharistic Congress.
We will continue to send out the EC Parish Contact emails to you, but in case you missed an email, the information is also included below for your convenience.
- Click here for the Eucharistic Congress bulletin announcements. These announcements are for use by the parish office and / or bulletin editor.
- Click here for the Eucharistic Congress logo. For use with the bulletin announcements.
- Bulletin Tip for August: It is helpful to add a double-sided flyer in the bulletin the weekend immediately PRIOR to the Eucharistic Congress. The flyer would have the EC Schedule on the front side, and the EC Procession Map on the back side (see below for flyer availability).
This year, the EC Prayer Cards in English and Spanish are being mailed out the week of June 17 to each parish office. Please allow 7-14 days for delivery.
EC Preparation Fun Fact: People have asked, “How do you determine the number of prayer cards for each parish?” The answer: we use the diocesan development office numbers on file for each parish. So for example: If the cards are sent in packs of 200, and the development office shows that a parish has 300 English-speaking parishioners, and 200 Spanish-speaking parishioners, then that parish would receive 2 packs of prayer cards in English, and 1 pack of prayer cards in Spanish. If your parish office does not receive the cards, or needs more cards, please email the Charlotte Diocese Director of Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Paper copies of the Eucharistic Congress poster, in both English and Spanish, will be mailed to parish offices at the end of July.
