National Eucharistic Congress Releases Updated Schedule to Include Special Guest Matt Maher

Updated schedule published for landmark event as day and weekend pass sales open online

Denver, CO, January 4, 2024—As the multi-year National Eucharistic Revival inches closer to its milestone moment within the movement, the executive team for the 2024 National Eucharistic Congress releases the highly-anticipated five-day schedule for this summer’s Indianapolis event with exciting new additions to the speaker lineup. With single-day and weekend pass options officially opening online today, prospective attendees will have a clear day-by-day breakdown of the full Congress experience taking place July 17-21, which now includes a special worship session with contemporary Christian singer and songwriter Matt Maher.

“God is renewing His Church, and we have seen it happening across the country in powerful ways during this year of Parish Revival,” said Tim Glemkowski, Chief Executive Officer of the National Eucharistic Congress, Inc. “It is with great excitement that we have turned the calendar to 2024, and this historic event that has been years in the making is finally within sight. It is our sincere hope that no matter how many days you are able to join us in Indy, the National Eucharistic Congress will be a profound festival-type experience of fellowship, worship, healing, and formation.”

The format for this summer’s National Eucharistic Congress will be one of Encounter, Equipping, and Experience:

  • In the morning, attendees will Encounter Christ within their pre-selected impact session, designed to form them according to their stages in life, cultural background, and individual faith journeys. It will set the tone for the day with moments of prayer, small group discussion, and inspiration from notable Catholic speakers such as Bishop Robert Barron, Dr. Mary Healy, and Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers.
  • The afternoon is geared toward Equipping attendees for mission, as individuals and groups are provided unique opportunities to be the hands and feet of Christ. Attendees are encouraged to participate in service projects, view the National Shroud of Turin traveling exhibit, and interact with Catholic vendors in the expansive exhibit hall where there will also be food and live music.
  • The plenary evening sessions will offer attendees a unique Experience of Revival. Thousands will gather together in Lucas Oil Stadium for Eucharistic Adoration, powerful moments of deep prayer and celebration, and inspiring talks from Cardinal Christophe Pierre, Fr. Mike Schmitz, Gloria Purvis, Sr. Josephine Garrett, and many more.

Above all, those who attend the National Eucharistic Congress will have a multitude of opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. “Amidst the tremendous programming that’s been thoughtfully planned along with mountaintop moments of celebration we look forward to sharing together as a Church, a highlight will be the many opportunities for confession offered throughout the Congress at the Indianapolis Convention Center and at St. John the Evangelist parish,” said Bishop Andrew Cozzens, Chair of the National Eucharistic Revival. “Additionally, Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration will be offered at St. John for private prayer time, and the apostolic penitentiary is issuing a decree granting a plenary indulgence to anyone who participates in the Congress or in one of the four legs of the pilgrimage.”

Day and weekend passes are now available for purchase on the Congress website. Single-day passes range from $49-$95 depending on the day, and weekend passes are $125. Those who purchase day passes are eligible for an additional 10% discount in the month of January with code EMMANUEL.
