The Vatican announced that the next International Eucharistic Congress, to be held in Quito, Ecuador, will take place from Sept. 8–15, 2024, with a theme focused on the healing power of Christian fraternity.
“This great ecclesial meeting will show the fruitfulness of the Eucharist for evangelization and the renewal of faith in the Latin American continent,” the Holy See Press Office said in the Wednesday announcement.
The International Eucharistic Congress aims to give witness to the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and to promote a better understanding of the liturgy and the Eucharist in the life of the Church. The congress is an occasion for regular prayer, eucharistic adoration, large eucharistic processions, and the celebration of Mass with Catholics from around the world. Events include spiritual talks, catechesis, and testimonies from Church leaders and Catholic speakers.
The 2024 congress’ theme is “Fraternity to heal the world. ‘You are all brothers.’”
