Eucharistic Congress Bus Trip

Eucharistic Congress Bus Trip

Join Us on a Eucharistic Pilgrimage

Ever since a 2019 Pew Research Center study found that only 31 percent of self- identifying Catholics said they believe that Jesus Christ truly becomes present in Holy Communion, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has been calling for a Eucharistic Revival in the Church. 

A core tenet of the Catholic faith is that the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ is truly made present in the Eucharist. But belief in The True Presence has waned in recent years.

Cardinal Seán O’Malley invites all the Catholic faithful in the Archdiocese of Boston and surrounding dioceses to join him in a day-long Eucharistic Congress, entitled Jesus is Here, which will take place on June 18, 2022, at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell. 

This Spiritual event with thousands of pilgrims will begin with a beautiful Mass and continue throughout the day with great national Catholic speakers and musicians, Eucharistic Adoration, opportunities for Confession, and conclude with a Eucharistic Procession throughout the streets of Lowell.

 Jesus is Here can be an excellent opportunity to deepen your understanding of the mystery of Jesus’ Presence with us - by listening to powerful talks on the Eucharist, receiving Jesus in the Eucharist at Mass, and by loving Him in a time of adoration and worship. This concluding day of Boston’s Year of the Eucharist promises to be one of those most memorable, Spiritual days of our lives ! We’ll be with Our Lord, significant Catholic leaders of our U.S. Catholic Church, some of the best Christian music artists in the country, and thousands of Adorers - on Fire!

A New Eucharistic Miracle in Mexico?
A video circulating on social media shows what appears to be a eucharistic miracle — a consecrated Host exposed for adoration by the faithful seems to “beat” like a heart.

Faithful Take to the Streets at  Eucharistic Procession
On June 19, while participating with hundreds of others in a Eucharistic procession through the streets of Lowell, Massachusetts, I was reminded of an experience I had as an 11-year-old altar boy.  My Parish, St. Joseph Patron in Brooklyn, N.Y. received news that Bishop Brian McEntegart was coming on the Feast of Corpus Christi to lead a Eucharistic Procession through the streets. This was a big deal. Our parish was one of over 220 in the Diocese of Brooklyn, so to be visited by the bishop was very special indeed. What made it even more special for me was that I was...

The Spiritual Life: How the Eucharist Catechizes about the Meaning of Life
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is currently undertaking a Eucharistic Revival. The idea for it began in 2019 when the bishops decided that we needed to respond to the moment of crisis in belief in the Eucharist in which we find ourselves—not only the discouraging results of the 2019 Pew study that reported that less than 30 percent of Catholics believe in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist but also the yet-unknown impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the eucharistic practice of Catholics. The response to the idea from the body of bishops ...
