More than 10,000 expected for New York Eucharistic Congress in October

Catholic News Agency, Kevin J. Jones:

A statewide New York Eucharistic Congress will take place Oct. 20-22 at the shrine that marks the martyrdom site of three North American martyrs and the birthplace of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, a Native American saint known for her devotion to eucharistic adoration.

“We look forward to welcoming upwards of 10,000 people to the Eucharistic Congress, who want to draw closer to Jesus and share in this historic three-day event,” Bishop Edward Scharfenberger of Albany said in a March 21 statement. “It will be a wonderful time to renew our faith in Jesus and share that faith with others,” he said.
