Chose your path to grow in love of the Eucharist during the National Eucharistic Congress

Criterion staff report

National Eucharistic Congress logoWhile the schedules for the first and last days of the National Eucharist Congress in Indianapolis on July 17-21 are unique, the three middle days follow a similar schedule—one that allows participants to craft their own experience of growing in love of Christ in the Eucharist.

Each of those three days offers morning Mass followed by the choice of one of six Impact sessions: an Encounter track focused on growing in relationship with Jesus; the same track offered in Spanish, called Encuentro; an Empower track focusing on tools of evangelization; a Renewal track for ministry leaders; a Family-focused track; and an Awaken track for youths.

Participants can then design their afternoon in several different ways. Each afternoon offers an option of either a 2-3:15 p.m. session or a 2:45-4 p.m. session, each with a different topic and each led be several well-known speakers. Downtime can be spent exploring a Shroud of Turin exhibit or taking in the vendors in a large exposition hall.

Or participants can choose a special afternoon experience, such as a musical theatrical performance highlighting moments from Scripture that center around the Eucharist, or a two-part session delving into the biblical theology of the Eucharist. Other options exist as well.
