Gain an Indulgence
A plenary, or full, indulgence will be offered to those who:
* Attend our Eucharistic Congress
* Go to Confession
*Receive Holy Communion
* 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).
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.
Eucharistic Procession Fills Streets in Budapest
A Eucharistic Congress is a 140 year old tradition urging Catholics to dig deeper into their faith. Earlier this month, the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress took place in Budapest with Pope Francis, which was the first time in 21 years that a Pope attend the International event.
