Atlanta, Ga., Jun 3, 2010 / 01:27 am
The Archdiocese of Atlanta’s 15th annual Eucharistic Congress will take place this weekend, dedicated to the theme “To Sanctify the Christian People.” It will emphasize the “indelible link” between the Eucharist and the priesthood with the help of speakers and musicians.
The free event will take place on June 4 and 5 at the Georgia International Convention Center.
The theme comes directly from the prayer of ordination for priests, the Archdiocese of Atlanta explained in a press release.
“Since this is the Year for Priests, Archbishop Gregory wanted to stress the sanctifying work that the priests do,” said Deacon Dennis Dorner, chairman of the Eucharistic Congress steering committee, referring to Archbishop of Atlanta Wilton Gregory.
