The annual Eucharistic Congress will take place June 21-22, 2019 at the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC). This year’s theme is taken from Luke 22:19, “This is my body given up for you.”
Thank you to all those who appointed a Eucharistic Congress Coordinator last year. Over 30,000 parishioners and clergy from across the Archdiocese of Atlanta and its surrounding areas gather each year to celebrate the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. This is made possible in part by the support of all those who volunteer as Eucharistic Congress Coordinators.
Please consider appointing a Eucharistic Congress Coordinator (clergy, staff or volunteer) at your parish, mission or school to assist you with advertising the congress to your community. The coordinator will have a vital role in sharing promotional materials, recruiting volunteers, facilitating the sale of parish Eucharistic Congress t-shirts and organizing transportation.
The deadline to sign up is March 12, 2019. To register as a coordinator or for more information, please visit http://congress.archatl.com/coordinators.
If you have additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404-920-6800.
