The Bishops of the United States are calling for a three-year grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. They believe that God wants to see a movement of Catholics across the United States, healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—and sent out in mission “for the life of the world.”
The National Eucharistic Congress, the culmination of the three-year Eucharistic Revival, will be a once-in-a-lifetime event to experience and be moved by the living God alongside nearly 80,000 other Catholics.
Event details: National Eucharistic Congress July 17-21, 2024 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Tickets: The diocese is offering a limited number of adult tickets at a cost of $200 per ticket (travel and hotel not included). The regular cost of an adult ticket is $375.
This offer is for adults only. Groups with children should take advantage of the reduced rates for children and families offered through the regular Congress ticket sales.
Hotel: The diocese has a block of rooms at The Hilton Garden Downtown, located only 8 blocks from Lucas Oil Stadium. The cost is $169/night +tax. (More information will be sent to you once you register.)
You are responsible for booking your own accommodations. You may stay at an alternative location if you prefer.
Transportation: You are responsible for arranging your own travel to and at the event.
The diocese can help arrange car-pooling between groups if needed. (More information will be sent to you once you register.)
Our diocese needs Catholics who are energized, devoted, and living their faith to the fullest. This might not sound like you. It might not sound like someone you could ever be. In the face of these doubts, know that this event is the chance for you to be propelled by God’s grace into a new level of faith no matter where you’re at right now.
This year is focused on bringing the Eucharistic Revival to each parish. The USCCB has great resources available for parish leaders including the following:
The Leaders Playbook: Supercharge your local Revival response with this essential resource! The Leader’s Playbook is your springboard into the Year of Parish Revival, providing concrete steps you can take to answer each of the four invitations at the heart of this movement.
Encounter Nights: How are you creating space—at least monthly—for people in your parish to come face-to-face with the Living God? The heart of this invitation is to create opportunities for people to personally encounter Jesus in the Eucharist.
“Jesus and the Eucharist” preaching series and small group: The majority of Mass-going Catholics either do not understand or do not accept the doctrine of the Real Presence. This year, we are invited to change that by providing robust formation around this amazing reality. We are here to support you in this effort!
And much more!!!
We’re inviting people across the diocese to commit to a simple daily moment of prayer for the intentions of the Eucharistic Revival.
If you have any questions or are in need of information you cannot find, please fill out the form.
To renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
To inspire a movement of Catholics across the United States who are healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—and who are then sent out on mission “for the life of the world.”
This first year of the Revival invites diocesan staff, bishops, and priests to respond to the Lord’s personal invitation and equips them to share this love with the faithful through eucharistic congresses and events.
