Jesus is coming! Let us adore him! As part of the Eucharistic Revival and the fast-approaching July Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis, cross country Eucharistic Pilgrimage routes (from each direction of the compass) are converging on Indianapolis. This Monday, the Southern Route – Juan Diego Route that began in Brownsville, TX – will reach Tennessee. On the Feast of the Nativity of John the Baptist, the pilgrimage will stop in Chattanooga for a day of adoration, worship, public witness and celebration of this Source and Summit of our Catholic Faith: the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. See the link ( to learn more and join in. We will be praying in union with all the pilgrims from our cloister in New Market, a few hours away.

Events scheduled in Chattanooga the day the Pilgrimage arrives: Basilica Talk and Tour, Adoration, Lauds, Mass, Procession to Newman Center at UT, Fellowship, and Celebration
