This November, Friends of the Cathedral is hosting The Eucharistic Congress at Ss Simon and Jude Cathedral, scheduled to coincide with the close of The Year of Faith. So many times we hear from converts to the Catholic Church that what brought them to the Church was the Eucharist. Yet, sadly, so many Catholics do not believe in the True Presence or do not recognize Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. As we close the Year of Faith, our hope is to awaken the hearts of the faithful as we celebrate and adore the Source and Summit of our Church, our treasure – The Holy Eucharist.
The Eucharistic Congress begins on Monday, November 18th and ends on Friday, November 22nd. During the week there will be evening Mass followed by a guest speaker, a 40-hour devotion beginning on Wednesday, 24-hours of Confession beginning Thursday, a photographic exhibit of Eucharistic miracles and much more. Guest speakers include popular speaker and best-selling author of 'Seven Secrets of the Eucharist', Vinny Flynn, and Sister Regina Marie Gorman, O.C.D. Vicar General Carmelite and Chair of the National Conference of Women Religious and Fr. Sergio Fita, Pastor of St. Anne Parish in Gilbert. There will also be a special guest speaker for our teens during the week, Fr. Scott Courtney from the Diocese of Lincoln Nebraska, who has an inspirational way of engaging our youth in learning and awakening their faith.
Please join us for this very special week as we adore, praise and celebrate the treasure of the Catholic Church - the Holy Eucharist!
