Eucharistic Congress – Friday, June 21-Saturday, June 22

Each year the Eucharistic Congress brings together Catholics from across our archdiocese and the southeast to celebrate the visible, living presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. The theme for this year’s Congress comes from the Book of Luke 22:19, “This is my body given up for you.” Come join us at the Georgia International Convention Center on June 21 and 22 and get energized by the music, inspiring talks, prayer, as well as an exhibition including Catholic art, jewelry, gifts, and other valuable resources to help grow your faith.  Learn more here.
