National Eucharistic Congress logo

The U.S. Catholic bishops are in the midst of a three-year Eucharistic Revival, and Catholic University is doing its part by serving as a premium mission partner at the 10th National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis this summer (July 17–21).

In preparation for that event, the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage will kick off in ay, as four teams of young adult pilgrims follow national routes before converging in Indianapolis a day before the Congress. A current junior, Danielle Schmitz, was chosen to be one of the pilgrims for the Marian Route (through the Midwest). See if one of their routes is passing near your city or town.

The University will host the “perpetual pilgrims” journeying along the East Coast “Seton route,” as they arrive in D.C. on June 7. On June 8, a Mass will be celebrated by Father Michael Fuller, general secretary of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, followed by a Eucharistic procession that will end at the St. John Paul II National Shrine. The following day, Cardinal Wilton Gregory, archbishop of Washington and University chancellor, will celebrate noon Mass with the pilgrims, before they depart for Pennsylvania on June 9.

Then in July, the University is proud to be a premiere University sponsor of the 10th National Eucharistic Congress, which will be held July 17–21, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. The University will serve as the largest college or university sponsor of the event; Catholic University’s discounted registration fee is $299 (NECCUA299).

Supported by five donor-friends, the sponsorship includes a program of activities specifically for priests, a breakout session on Catholic education, and an event for young adults on dating as a Catholic today. There will be areas where faculty, staff, alumni, friends, and students can engage with other attendees at the Congress, as well as engaging social events.

Don’t miss this important, historic event and opportunity to connect with the Cardinal community and believers from around the nation. See registration and agenda details.
