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 Thanksgiving Day Prayer
God, all powerful, most holy, most high and supreme; Father: holy and righteous; Lord: king of heaven and earth; we thank you for yourself, because by your holy will and through your only Son and the Holy Spirit you created all things, spiritual and material. You made us in your image and likeness and placed us in paridise, and we, through our transgression fell away. We give you thanks because, as you created us through your Son, so by the holy love with which you loved us you willed your Son to be born true God and true man of the glorious and holy ...

A Veterans Day Prayer
The Return “The Return,” an emotional depiction of a World War I soldier kneeling before a crucifix inside the Church of the Holy Innocents on West 37th and Broadway in lower Manhattan built in 1866. Both the crucifix and the church are still in place today. God of peace, we pray for those who have served our nation and have laid down their lives to protect and defend our freedom. We pray for those who have fought, whose spirits and bodies are scarred by war, whose nights are haunted by memories too painful for the light of day. We pray for those who se...
