National Eucharistic Congress: July 17-21, 2024
Join Bishop Walsh and other faithful from the diocese at the National Eucharistic Congress in July 2024. More information about the Congress, including the cost to attend is available at dioceseofgaylord.org/NEC2024.
As a special gift from the Lord this year, Ash Wednesday falls on the day of love. This gives us a wonderful opportunity to begin the Lenten season with a reminder that love is our compass.
The Lord desires our whole heart, and today we are called through the prophet Joel to “return to me with your whole heart” (Joel 2:12). During Lent, we must repent and return to Christ. Seize the possibilities of Lent—take a step closer to God!
Celebrate Lent with your parish community at a fish fry!
During Lent, we fast and abstain from meat on Fridays. Attend a Fish Fry at one of parishes in the diocese.
Visit dioceseofgaylord.org/fishfry for a listing of all Fish Fries throughout Lent.
Solidarity Fund for National Eucharistic Congress
The National Eucharistic Congress has recently released information about a Solidarity Fund available for both individuals and groups interested in attending the Congress but who are unable to afford the inherent costs.
The scholarship application is available for anyone interested in applying. The application is self-guided and user-friendly.
The scholarship application for groups requires some collaboration with the Diocese of Gaylord, and is meant for youth, school, or parish groups. If you are interested in bringing a group from your parish or school, please reach out to me or Ami Peterson, (989) 705-3539, to learn more about what the process looks like.
For both groups and individuals, the link to apply for the Solidarity Fund is below:
