All ages ‘Becoming Eucharist’ word and art contest


As the Diocese of St. Cloud is gearing up for the Diocesan Eucharistic Congress Sept. 7-9, the local Eucharistic Revival Prayer Team is announcing a contest for all ages to depict art, photography, poetry or a short reflection/essay about the Eucharist. Through prayer and reflection, individuals are asked to consider the theme, “What does the Eucharist mean to me?” Participants are encouraged to read Scripture, Church documents on the Eucharist and other trusted Catholic resources, study the lives of the saints, talk with others and spend time in personal prayer and contemplation.

Please see the age categories below. Winners in each category will be announced in The Central Minnesota Catholic magazine and all entries will be displayed during the Eucharistic Congress at Lake George in St. Cloud on Sept. 9.
