Eucharistic Congress Targets Hunger

The Archdiocese of Atlanta will come together at the annual Eucharistic Congress slated for June 3-4, 2016. Three billion people around the world live in poverty and face hunger on a daily basis. Because our Catechism reminds us that “the Eucharist commits us to the poor” (CCC 1397), the archdiocese is kicking off this year’s Congress with a Friday morning meal packing event— STARVE WARS! 650 volunteers of all ages are needed to help pack 100,000 meals which will go to the impoverished developing country of Burkina Faso in Africa. This event will take place Friday, June 3 at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park. Registration is required to participate. Registration is available at the Congress website: Let’s extend our mercy to our brothers and sisters!
