Will You Be There?

The 10th National Eucharistic Congress (NEC) will be held on July 17-21, 2024, in Indianapolis, primarily at Lucas Oil Stadium and in surrounding venues. As the defining event of a five-year National Eucharistic Revival, the NEC is an opportunity for Catholics across the United States to be “healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist”—and then to be sent out on mission, newly inspired and “on fire” with the love of Christ and His Holy Spirit.

The Week at a Glance

Each day of the National Eucharistic Congress is guided by a theme drawn from Scripture:

  • From the Four Corners (Wednesday)
  • The Greatest Love Story (Thursday)
  • Into Gethsemane (Friday)
  • This is My Body (Saturday)
  • To the Ends of the Earth (Sunday)

The NEC will open on the evening of Wednesday, July 17, with a Eucharistic Procession into Lucas Oil Stadium and the first general session. In the following days, participants will be provided daily with an opportunity for specialized morning catechetical and afternoon breakout sessions, along with a closing general session at Lucas Oil Stadium. On Saturday, July 20, the afternoon will also feature a city-wide Eucharistic procession. Sunday, July 21, will draw all participants together for a closing Mass at Lucas Oil Stadium that will send forth all those gathered as missionary disciples, newly inspired and prepared to share the Eucharistic love of the Lord.

The NEC is intended to re-invigorate the Faithful for mission and ministry. As such, five tracks are being offered with messages designed to meet participants where they are and speak relevantly to their personal needs and ministry role. Participants will be able to select a track they wish to participate in: Encounter, Eucharistic Missionary, Ministry, Youth, or Family. The Encounter track, the most general of those offered, will be provided in both English and Spanish. The NEC has indicated that in the spring of 2024 an email will be sent to those who have registered in order to select the sessions they wish to attend from the selected track. The NEC has also indicated that additional language translations will be available.

The details of speakers and session content have yet to be shared, but participants can look forward to opportunities to hear from Bishop Robert E. Barron, Bishop Andrew H. Cozzens, Father Mike Schmitz, Gloria Purvis, and Katie Prejean McGrady. The NEC has indicated that there will be streaming opportunities for select sessions.
