Volunteers are needed to help with National Eucharistic Congress family track

Criterion staff report

Volunteers are needed to help with the family track during the National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis on July 17-21.

“Volunteers of all generations are needed,” says Gabriela Ross, director of the archdiocesan Office of Marriage and Family Life. “It’s especially a great opportunity for grandparents. They form such an important part of the family.”

She notes that grandparents attending the National Eucharistic Congress “can go to any track they choose, so we invite them to consider volunteering for just an hour or two at the family track as a cheerful witness of love.”

Volunteers must be age 18 and older.

To express an interest in volunteering, an online form is available at eucharisticcongress.org/volunteer. It takes only one to two minutes to complete.

Volunteers must complete the archdiocese’s online safe environment training, which is available 24/7.

To participate in the National Eucharistic Congress events and sessions, volunteers must register separately. To register for a day, weekend or five-day pass, go to eucharisticcongress.org/register. Members of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis can receive a discount by using the code Indy24 when registering. †
