National Eucharistic Procession in our diocese

July 8 - July 12

You are invited to a once-in-a-lifetime experience being called “our national Emmaus moment,” after the biblical passage in which Jesus walked with two of his disciples along the road to Emmaus. The National Eucharistic Pilgrimage is an unprecedented pilgrimage in which Catholics will pray and publicly follow Jesus in their cities through Eucharistic processions. The Diocese of Springfield in Illinois is excited to be included in one of the four national routes (July 8-12) that finish in Indianapolis for the National Eucharistic Congress.

Pilgrims can be a public witness of our faith by participating in the Eucharistic processions, they can pray before our Lord in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in our churches, grow in fellowship with their neighbors at dinners, and hear powerful witness talks from the national eucharistic procession team as they share their experiences of taking Jesus across the nation.

Here is the schedule:

  • July 8: Collinsville and Alton
  • July 9: Alton and Quincy
  • July 10: Girard and Springfield
  • July 11: Springfield and Effingham
  • July 12: Effingham and Teutopolis
