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!

Argentine priest Father Carlos Spahn, founder and superior of the Religious Family of the Immaculate Heart and Divine Mercy, who is currently ministering in Mexico, led the eucharistic adoration service.
