Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger has announced a major event for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany: the Hearts Aflame Eucharistic Congress to be held Saturday, September 22, 2018 at the
Shrine of the North American Martyrs in Auriesville.
In our Catholic tradition, a “Eucharistic Congress” is a special gathering led by the bishop focused on our Lord Jesus in the Eucharist. It is a time of joy, fellowship, prayer, and unity. This will be a time of spiritual renewal for our whole diocese.
The day will include:
- Mass with the bishop
- Inspirational speakers
- Activities for Children and Youth
- Eucharistic Adoration & Procession
- Tours of the Shrine
- Fellowship & unity with other Catholics
All Catholics in the diocese are invited to attend. Parishes are strongly encouraged to organize groups to travel to the event.
