Each year the Eucharistic Congress brings together Catholics from across the Archdiocese and the country to celebrate the visible, living presence of Jesus. Archbishop Gregory, along with Bishop Talley and Bishop Zarama, ask that you join them for this year’s Eucharistic Congress at the Georgia International Convention Center, June 3rd and 4th.
The theme of the 2016 Eucharistic Congress comes from the Gospel of Luke 6:36 “Be Merciful Just as Your Father is Merciful.” Come join us and take this opportunity to be renewed by God’s mercy and feel the real presence of Christ through the Eucharist. Allow Him to open your heart and extend your mercy to others while you reconnect with friends, get inspired by wonderful testimonials, and spend quiet time in prayer throughout this powerful weekend!For information or to volunteer:
The Year of Mercy is an invitation-an invitation to love....
On Saturday, April 11, the Vigil of the Feast of Divine Mercy, Pope Francis promulgated the papal document that officially declared the extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. Set to run from Dec. 8, 2015, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, to Nov. 20, 2016, the Solemnity of Christ the King, it'll be a time of great grace.
“Jesus Christ is the face of the Father's mercy…We need constantly to contemplate the mystery of mercy. It is a wellspring of joy, serenity, and peace. Our salvation depends on it. Mercy: the word reveals the very mystery of the Most Holy Trinity. Mercy: the ultimate and supreme act by which God comes to meet us. Mercy: the fundamental law that dwells in the heart of every person who looks sincerely into the eyes of his brothers and sisters on the path of life. Mercy: the bridge that connects God and man, opening our hearts to a hope of being loved forever despite our sinfulness.” Pope Francis, from the Papal Bull of Indiction of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy
