Eucharistic Congress - Oct. 28 - BOS Center - Springfield

Eucharistic Congress at the BOS Center - Oct. 28 - Springfield

The Eucharistic Congress will be a spiritually uplifting and motivating event featuring talks from nationally popular Catholic speakers. It also includes Catholic vendors, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, confession, and inspirational videos.  The day culminates with the very essence of the Year of the Eucharist, the Mass, with an arena full of Catholics eager to hear the Word of God and receive Jesus present in the holy Eucharist.

How seating will work at the Eucharistic Congress at the BOS Center Oct. 28

A letter went out to pastors, deacons, and parish administrators about how seating will work. Each parish is designated a specific number of seats and is responsible for how best they want to fill them. Read the letter here: BOS-letter.
