On September 9-10, Knights and Dames from the Charlotte and Greensboro regions took part in the Diocese of Charlotte Eucharistic Congress, focusing this year on divine mercy as expressed in Luke's gospel: "Be merciful, just as your father is merciful".


The event included nationally known speakers, an inspiring Eucharistic procession through uptown Charlotte, and Mass celebrated by Bishop Peter J Jugis of the Diocese of Charlotte.  Though largely conducted in English, the congress also provided customized programs in Spanish, Vietnamese and Korean, as well as separate programs for children and high schoolers. 


We would invite all Knights and Dames of the Federal Association to join us for the 2017 Eucharistic Congress scheduled for next September 8-9 in Charlotte.
