The Archdiocese of Boston’s Office for Vocations is sponsoring a Eucharistic Congress for College Students and Young Adults on Friday, March 28, and Saturday, March 29. In addition to some excellent speakers and, of course, prayer and adoration and the sacraments, they’ve also planned service projects in the city—putting faith into action— as well as a dinner on Saturday night in the North End, catered by some of the finest Italian restaurants.
And for those who volunteer to help with Congress or participate in the service projects the dinner is free. Adoration of the Lord and a free meal? How can you beat it?
The speakers include Father Matt Williams, Director of the Office for the New Evangelization of Youth and Young Adults for the Archdiocese of Boston, on the topic of “Eucharist and Confession, Reconciliation, conversion and change in our lives”; Father Peter Cameron O.P., Editor-in-Chief of Magnificat Magazine; Paul George, Co-Founder of Adore Ministries on the Topic of “Eucharist and Evangelization and Vocation”; Kerri Marmol, a member of the Community of Sant’Egidio, an international lay association, and founder of the School of Peace in Jamaica Plain, a Saturday program to help students with their schoolwork, and the School of the Gospel in Allston, a Bible discussion for adults; and, of course, Cardinal Sean O’Malley.
