History of the Eucharistic Congress:
In the middle of the 19th century in the European countries, and especially in France initiatives aiming the fostering of the respect for the Eucharist started to develop at an extraordinary pace. This kind of renewal of the Eucharistic spirituality, as a counterreaction to the social changes which followed the failure of Jansenist austerity and the Ancien Régime, and the Industrial Revolution, placed at the core the eucharistic adoration and the reconciliation with Jesus Christ, the God hidden in the Eucharist, who was "dishonoured by the pridefuls and ignored by the holders of public authority, who set up the secularisation of the society as their goal". (R. Aubert, Eucharistic congresses from Leo XIII to Paul VI, in Concilium 1, 1960, p. 118.)

 Morning Prayers, Catechesis, Workshops, Testimonies are held by (among others):
