Background

Although there are beautiful Eucharistic conferences in different parts of the world, the great majority of local people never travel to participate in any of these conferences. The expectation is to deepen the intimacy with Jesus in adoration, to increase the commitment of adoration at least for that neighborhood, to enable the parishes in that neighborhood to increase the available hours of adoration or to start perpetual adoration within one’s parish or jointly with neighboring small parishes.

Live stream

Live stream captured on the day of conference is now available in YouTube. See the program below for the links to YouTube. Alternatively, you can also search in YouTube for "Eucharist Conference 2017".
