The Eucharistic Congress held a spiritual “Pray for Boston” candlelight procession on Saturday night through the streets of the North End. Taking place so soon after the Marathon bombings, the annual event had special meaning this year bringing together hundreds of young adults from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston. Activities included service projects, a vigil mass by Cardinal Sean O’Malley and a keynote by Susan Conroy who worked alongside Mother Teresa. This was the 6th Annual Eucharistic Congress held in the North End at both St. Leonard and Sacred Heart Churches.
