Eucharistic Congress: Lumen Civitatis, Other Top Sponsors, Schedule, Speakers and More
Our Catholic Diocese of Memphis is very grateful to the many sponsors of our first-ever Eucharistic Congress in recognition of our 50th Anniversary. Please view the following video from Bishop Talley on our top Eucharistic Congress sponsor–Platinum: BishopLumenCivitatis. Lumen Civitatis, which means Light of the City, was founded to promote Catholic culture, education and leadership throughout the greater Memphis area in fidelity to the Magisterium of the Church and the local Ordinary. Our Eucharistic Congress fits well with their quest. Many thanks. Also, click on the following link to view all of our other wonderful Eucharistic Congress sponsors at the Gold-Silver-Bronze levels.

Mass with Eucharistic Procession
Our Eucharistic Congress will include beautiful Masses, faith-filled Speakers, Prayer, Confession, Adoration and Music. It will be a time of joy, faith, hope and unity with a mission to help make Catholics more aware that the Eucharistic is the source and summit of the Church’s life. On Saturday evening, Oct. 9, join Bishop Talley and thousands of the Faithful for Mass with Eucharistic Procession. We will all walk from the Convention Center to the magnificent St. Peter Catholic Church where we will end the Procession with Benediction on the steps of the oldest Catholic Church in Memphis.
Gain an Indulgence
A plenary, or full, indulgence will be offered to those who attend our Eucharistic Congress, go to Confession, receive Holy Communion and offer prayers for the Holy Father within a week of our Eucharistic Congress. “An indulgence is a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven,” according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church (1471).
