Eucharistic Congress Soon – Register, Masks, Indulgence, Videos and More
Less than three weeks from today, in recognition of our 50th Anniversary, our first-ever Eucharistic Congress will take place on Friday, Oct. 8 (6pm-9pm) and Saturday, Oct. 9 (9am-6pm) at the Renasant Convention Center, Downtown Memphis. Masking will be required inside the Convention Center. The event will be a magnificent gathering of thousands of clergy, religious and community members to bear witness to the real presence of our Lord in the Eucharist with the theme That All May Be One (John 17:21)!
A plenary indulgence will be granted at our Eucharistic Congress to attendees who:
- Reach a state of grace by going to Confession.
- Visit the Blessed Sacrament for Adoration for at least 30 minutes.
- Participate religiously in the Solemn Eucharistic celebration held at the conclusion of our Eucharistic Congress.
- Devoutly join in the Solemn Eucharistic Procession (our Eucharistic Congress concluding Mass includes the Procession to the steps of the beautiful St. Peter Catholic Church, the oldest Catholic Church in our Memphis Diocese).

Joy, Faith and Unity
Our first-ever Eucharistic Congress will include beautiful Masses, faith-filled talks, prayer, confession, adoration and music. It will be a time of joy, faith and unity with a mission to make Catholics more aware that the Eucharistic is the source and summit of the Church’s life. On Saturday afternoon, Oct. 9, join Bishop Talley and thousands for Mass with Eucharistic Procession. We will walk from the Renasant Center to St. Peter where we will end the Procession with Benediction on the steps of the church.
