St. Joseph Church group attends the eucharistic congress in Atlanta
COLUMBIA—A small group from St. Joseph Church traveled to Atlanta to join thousands of other Catholics from the Southeast to pray in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and be enriched by speakers from around the world at the annual eucharistic congress held June 20-21 in Atlanta.

The theme was “Go and make disciples” (Mt 28:19). Christie Henkel from St. Joseph parish was one of the attendees. The congress was a way for Catholics to gather in community and share the joy
and power of the real presence, she wrote in a press release. The focus on discipleship stressed the need to know, live, and share the Catholic faith, she said, adding that the new evangelization requires all to be “followers of Jesus, not fans of Jesus.” Catholics come to Jesus in the Eucharist in order to be strengthened in their faith and then are called to go out and share that faith, radiating Jesus’ love to others, she said. The congress concluded with the Vigil Mass for the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, celebrated by Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory of Atlanta.
