Emmaus Knights – April 21

Sunday, April 21st from 4:30 – 6:30pm
2327 W Heading Ave, Peoria, IL

Young men – from 7th grade to 12th grade – get together on one Sunday afternoon per month to share in fun, food, and faith – just like we do at Emmaus Days! I invite you to Emmaus Knights from 4:30 to 6:30 PM at The Emmaus House!

Although your moms or siblings might be able to give you a ride, I encourage you to ask your fathers to bring you so that they can join in fraternity with other men from around the diocese!

You are coming from all parts of the diocese so I hope that you can share rides with people from your area and even invite some friends who have never been on Emmaus Days before to ride with you!

National Eucharistic Congress – July 17-21, 2024

Come Experience REVIVAL
July 17-21, 2024 in Indianapolis, IN

Prepare your heart and mark your calendar. Get ready for the Catholic event of a generation! In July 2024, Catholics from all over the US will gather in Indianapolis for a transformative encounter with the Real Presence of Jesus. Together, we will ask him to revive our hearts, our Church, and our world, launching us into a new chapter of missionary faith. This will be a defining moment for the Church in America.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity for grace! Many seats have already been claimed. Book your passes today at eucharisticcongress.org.

The Catholic Church in the United States has not gathered in this way since before we entered World War II. The people of God will come from every corner and every parish in our nation to bring the holy fire back to their local community. Your life – and our Church – will never be the same.
