Thousands of catholics from all over New York state took part in a Eucharistic Congress over the weekend.

The first of its kind event happened at the national shrine of the North American martyrs in Auriesville, which is less than an hour outside of Albany.

Attendees from all eight dioceses in New York participated in worship, adoration, and a miles-long procession with the blessed sacrament.

The Body of Christ, along with the congress is at the center of a national campaign, designed by the U.S. bishops to bring Catholics closer to Jesus’ real presence in the Eucharist.

The Diocese of Brooklyn is planning to hold their own revival in the Spring.
