Eucharistic Congress

at the BOS Center in Springfield | October 28, 2023

A historic event that will feed your soul and inspire your faith in a radical way

To celebrate the Year of the Eucharist going on in the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois right now and the 100th anniversary of the transfer of the See city of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois from Alton to Springfield, you are invited to a historic celebration and Mass, and it’s all free!


This Eucharistic Congress will be a spiritually uplifting and motivating event featuring talks from nationally popular Catholic speakers Sister M. Karolyn Nunes, FSGM, Father Chase Hilgenbrinck, Father Denis Robinson, OSB, and Dr. Scott Hahn. It also includes a Catholic Marketplace, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, confession, a showing of the documentary God is Alive | Incredible stories of faith and miraculous events in Central Illinois, and a showing of The Chair, which highlights the beauty of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Springfield and the history of the diocese. 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.
