Event description
A Eucharistic Congress is a gathering of clergy and community members to bear witness to the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Eucharist.

About this event

The theme of this Eucharistic Congress is: That All May Be one. As the people of the Diocese of Memphis celebrate the 50th Anniversary of our Diocese, we pause to remember that we are all members of the One Body in Christ through our Baptism. We will celebrate Mass and provide opportunities for visiting the Blessed Sacrament in Adoration and receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Keynote speakers will include: Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, Dr. Scott Hahn and Noelle Garcia, to name a few. All are welcome to attend this free event. Donations will be accepted at the event.
