Encountering Jesus

Area Catholics among thousands traveling to National Eucharistic Congress for a “new Pentecost”

The much-anticipated National Eucharistic Congress begins Wednesday, July 17, in Indianapolis, providing a one-of-a-kind experience for Catholics – including hundreds from the Archdiocese of Omaha – who will attend.

Live updates from the 10th National Eucharistic Congress, which runs through July 21, will be available on the Catholic Voice and the archdiocese’s Facebook and Instagram accounts. EWTN also will broadcast several events from the Congress in English and Spanish. A list of those events can be found here.

A limited number of discounted tickets are still available to purchase through the archdiocese.

For those who are unable to travel to Indianapolis for this historic event, Archbishop George J. Lucas reminds us that “though the national pilgrimage is a unique occurrence, a similar thing happens regularly for faithful Catholics who receive Jesus in the Eucharist at Mass.”

The Congress is expected to draw tens of thousands of Catholics for a life-changing encounter with Jesus. Attendees will attend impact sessions each morning and afternoon breakout sessions. Each evening, the whole assembly will experience powerful revival sessions in Lucas Oil Stadium.

Speakers at the Congress include Bishop Robert Barron, Father Mike Schmitz, Jeff Cavins and many more. Deacon Omar Gutierrez from the Archdiocese of Omaha will speak on the diaconate and the Eucharist at a breakout session on Saturday.
