Customize Your Congress Experience

Each morning at the Congress will begin with Mass, where we’ll encounter Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Then, nourished by that encounter, we’ll continue forming our hearts and minds in the Eucharistic mystery through morning impact sessions.

In order to make this gathering the most fruitful for Catholics of so many different stages of life and vocational callings, these impact sessions are organized with various themes and intended audiences. Ask the Lord how he is calling you to participate in the Congress and how he wants to form your heart through these five powerful days.

Who is this for?

RENEWAL: Ministry Leader Experience

Revive Your Spiritual Life and Apostolates

Whether you’ve spent one year in the vineyard of ministry or forty years, you know the challenges and blessings that come with serving in Catholic ministry and are no stranger to the work of revival. In gratitude for our seasoned Church workers and laborers for the Kingdom—including full-time paid staff members, part-time volunteers, and those somewhere in between—we have created a community-focused experience just for you.

Fulfilling the call to be a disciple demands constant conversion, renewal, and docility to the Holy Spirit. These sessions will invite you to explore new and creative possibilities of accompaniment, evangelization, and catechesis. This experience will equip you in your ministry as a parish, diocesan, or apostolate leader to invite and cultivate revival in your vineyards.

Emceed by Mari Pablo, these morning impact sessions include some of the most respected names in ministry as keynote speakers, such as Damon Owens, Sarah Kaczmarek, Julianne Stanz, and Curtis Martin. Attendees can expect plenty of time for discussion, question and answer, and renewing moments of prayer with other workers in the vineyard.

A family praying together.

Who is this for?

This experience is intentionally designed for parents or caregivers and children to attend together, with activities, talks, and prayers that will speak to every family member. Families with children aged 12 and younger will find these sessions to be particularly impactful. High schoolers are welcome either to attend with their family or to join a group and attend the youth sessions during the day as a part of the Awaken experience.

Cultivate: The Family Experience

Become a Family on Mission

Fostering a love of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist within our homes will have a profound impact on how we love others outside of our homes. Enjoy vibrant keynotes that will speak to both parents and children of all ages, engaging worship music, and opportunities for family discussion. You’ll hear from prominent Catholic speakers like Fr. Leo Patalinghug, Ennie and Cana Hickman, and more.

Mornings will feature opportunities for prayer as a family that are impactful for adults and designed with children in mind. You will learn together, share together, and spend time with each other in dedicated spaces and family-oriented experiences that feature amenities specifically tailored to families with children. In the evening, families will join the rest of the congregation of the 10th National Eucharistic Congress for sessions in Lucas Oil Stadium.

Eucharistic Revival happens at the grassroots level, and the domestic Church is an essential part of this movement. This experience will not only lay a foundation of Eucharistic faith in your home, but it will also challenge you to consider how your family lives out the mission of the Catholic Church in our world.

Teenagers worshipping together.

Who is this for?

These sessions are for high school youth—incoming freshmen through just-graduated seniors. Teens cannot attend alone and must participate with a youth group or be accompanied by a parent.

Awaken: The Youth Experience

Empower Young Catholic Disciples

Throughout history, revival in the Church has been accompanied by a revival of faith in the youth. Teenagers face numerous obstacles and challenges in our world today: rising rates of mental illness, an onslaught of post-Christian values that run contrary to our faith, and a world wracked with violence and indifference. There has never been a better time for young people to become witnesses to the power of Christ’s love and agents of Eucharistic Revival.

Teenagers are invited to a unique youth conference experience at the National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis. During the day, they will attend large morning sessions and afternoon breakouts designed specifically for teenagers—joining thousands of young people from across the United States in worshiping Jesus Christ and being empowered as Catholic disciples to become evangelists in their parish, community, and culture. Look forward to dynamic Catholic speakers such as Oscar Rivera, Brian Greenfield, and Jackie Francois Angel.

In the evening, teenagers will join the entire congregation of the National Eucharistic Congress to be part of tens of thousands of Catholics in Lucas Oil Stadium for the evening program, providing an incredible witness to the power of Catholic youth in the Church in the United States as a part of this historic moment. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will transform teenagers at your parish forever and will be the catalyst to revival in their lives and the life of your community.

These sessions will be offered in English.
