July 17, 2024 – July 21, 2024
Sponsored by the Napa Institute, this is the First National Eucharistic Congress in 83 Years. The congress is the culmination of a multiyear “Eucharistic Revival” initiative of the U.S. Catholic bishops, which aims to inspire deeper belief in and devotion to the holy Eucharist, the body and blood of Jesus. This is a pivotal moment in both American history and the legacy of the Catholic Church. Tens of thousands of pilgrims are expected—but space is limited.
Set to open Wednesday, July 17, and run though Sunday, July 21, the National Eucharistic Congress will feature a mile-long Eucharistic procession through Indianapolis and several opportunities for Eucharistic adoration with an expected assembled group of 80,000 attendees. The congress will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium, the massive indoor arena of the Indianapolis Colts.
The upcoming National Eucharistic Congress will feature Grammy Award-nominated Catholic musician Matt Maher as worship leader. Maher, a Canadian musician best known for his contemporary worship hits such as “Lord I Need You” and “Your Grace Is Enough,” will lead a massive worship session in Lucas Oil Stadium on the Saturday of the congress.
