Eucharistic Congress at the BOS Center - Oct. 28 - A historic event that will feed your soul and inspire your faith in a radical way
What is this?
The Eucharistic Revival is a national and diocesan movement to invite Catholics into a deeper understanding and devotion of the Holy Eucharist.
When is this taking place?
We encourage Catholics to participate in eucharistic events at their parish and at the diocesan level and to open their hearts and souls to a greater devotion to Christ present to us in the Holy Eucharist.

Visit the Cathedral in Springfield or Ss. Peter and Paul Church in Alton, receive an indulgence!
The diocesan-wide Year of the Eucharist going on now has a heavenly treasure of our Catholic faith attached to it. Bishop Thomas John Paprocki received permission from the Holy See, granting a plenary indulgence to those who make a pilgrimage to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Springfield or Ss. Peter and Paul Church in Alton (the “Old Cathedral”) now through Dec. 8. One must also partake in the other usual conditions to receive this indulgence by going to Confession, receiving the Eucharist, and saying prayers for the intention of the Pope. These acts “may be carried out several days preceding or following the performance of the prescribed works. But it is more fitting that communion and the prayer for the pope’s intentions take place on the day the work is performed” (Handbook of Indulgences, Norms for Indulgences, 23.3). An indulgence a gift and grace that remits the temporal punishment due to a sin
