BRIGHTON -- A eucharistic congress geared toward college students and young adults will be held March 28-29 in the Boston’s North End.
The congress, a free event, will take place at St. Stephen Parish. Meals and the closing of each evening will be held at St. Leonard of Port Maurice Parish, also in the North End. It is jointly organized by the Vocations Office, Campus Ministry Office and the Office for the New Evangelization of Youth and Young Adults.
“Jesus comes to me every morning in holy Communion, and I repay him in my very small way by visiting the poor,” Father Daniel Hennessey, director of vocations for the Archdiocese of Boston, said quoting Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati.
“Those words speak to the heart of the upcoming Eucharistic Congress,” he said.
Organizers hope college students and young adults attending the congress will deepen their understanding of God’s gift of the Eucharist and his call to serve others, he added.
On March 28 registration will begin at 6 p.m., followed by prayer, music, witness talks, adoration, confession and a talk entitled “Eucharist: A Mystery of Transformation” by Father Matt Williams, director of the Office for the New Evangelization of Youth and Young Adults.
