National Eucharistic Congress

Tens of thousands of Catholics from across the United States will gather in Indianapolis July 17-21, 2024 for the 10th National Eucharistic Congress (NEC). Every participant will need to have a NEC Congress pass to gain admission to all National Eucharistic Congress sessions (general gatherings, teaching, and workshops), entertainment, Mass, Holy Hours, and adoration taking place in Indianapolis. The cost for a standard Congress Pass starts at $375 for individual adults with the possibility of $299/person for groups of 11 or more people. Families may register with children ($99/child 3-18; lap child 0-2 free). Note, the pass does not include the cost of any meals. Participants will also need to arrange and pay for travel, lodging, and meal expenses (estimated to be $2000-$3000 per person).

Dube Travel arranged a group travel package from Maine for individuals who have purchased Congress Passes separately. Space is limited!! Reserve your spot before March 31, 2024 to secure your spot in the pilgrimage.

Deeply Discounted Passes for Mainers 

Bishop Robert Deeley was able to reserve a limited number of discounted passes for this monumental event. With assistance of a grant from the Lay Continuing Education and Formation Endowment Fund, a discount code for registering for a NEC Congress Passes may be purchased for $110 per person (a $265 savings!) under these conditions:

  • Participants must reside in Maine and be associated with a Catholic parish, school, or campus ministry in the Diocese of Portland.

  • The discount code is only applicable for adult registrants since the standard fees for children are lower than the discounted price ($99/child age 3-18; free for lap child 0-2).

  • Purchasers will be invoiced for the number of participants they submit for use of the discount code. This payment is non-refundable though the national committee will allow passes to transferred to another person prior to formalizing housing arrangements.

  • A maximum of seven discounted passes may be purchased by a single family or group.
