The SEEK24 Catholic conference, put on by the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS), wrapped up this week in St. Louis, having attracted some 24,000 people for talks, workshops, and worship, including a massive session of Eucharistic adoration.
As impressive as it was to have a group that size gathered to adore the Eucharistic Jesus, a new event this summer promises to up the ante.
The National Eucharistic Congress, the culmination of the U.S. bishops’ multiyear project of promoting belief in and reverence for the Eucharist, is expected to attract 80,000 people to Indianapolis July 17–21.
In addition, leading up to the congress is the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage — four Eucharistic processions starting from differing points in the country and finishing in Indianapolis for the start of the congress.
