National Eucharistic Congress
Youth Delegation

The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland is taking a delegation of high school teens and chaperones to the Tenth National Eucharistic Congress - the first one in 83 years!  This is a pivotal moment in both American history and the legacy of the Catholic Church. They are expecting tens of thousands of pilgrims—but space is limited. Jesus Christ will be there. Will you?

July 17-21, 2024
Indianapolis, Indiana

The Cleveland Youth Delegation is FULL

If you would like to bring a group of teens to this event, we might still be able to squeeze you in!  Please contact Francine ASAP!


Empower Young Catholic Disciples

The National Eucharistic Congress has five different tracks or "Impact Sessions" for attendees. Our diocesan delegation of 50 teens and adult chaperones will attend the track designed specifically for high school youth — incoming freshmen through just-graduated seniors.

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. 

In the evening, we 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.
