This event will serve as a sort of mini-Eucharistic Congress for the Diocese of Grand Rapids, gathering Catholics throughout the diocese for a daylong celebration of our unity in faith and sacrament as we transition to the parish year of the national Eucharistic Revival.The day will include Mass with Bishop Walkowiak; talks by Father Jonathan Kelly, rector of St. John Vianney College Seminary, and Missionary Meg Hunter-Kilmer; along with a Eucharistic procession to publicly witness to our faith.
The day will also include time for participants to:
– celebrate the sacrament of confession
– visit a ministry fair showcasing ways to serve and give within our diocese
– explore the Vatican display of Eucharistic Miracles provided by the Mary Our Mother Foundation (some of you may be familiar with this exhibit which has already been hosted by some of our parishes)
– participate in Eucharistic Adoration in Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Chapel.
All are invited to stay after the event for a family festival which will include live music and food available for purchase from food trucks. The festival will run from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Boxed lunches will be provided to registrants. Registration cost for the day is $10/person or $40/family household. Please plan to join us for this day focused on worship of the Blessed Sacrament and growth in our understanding of its mystery.
