The 2012 Eucharistic Congress is benefitting from a new sponsorship program to help financially sustain the annual event that draws some 30,000 Catholics from the archdiocese and beyond.

Four sponsorship levels offer not only premium exposure in the exhibit hall at the congress but also valuable advertising through The Georgia Bulletin, social media and other outlets.

In addition to the current leading sponsors, Catholic Charities Atlanta and The Maximus Group, and the English Track sponsor, the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia, several new sustaining sponsors have stepped up in support for the 2012 Eucharistic Congress.

Among these new sponsors are Diocesan Publications, J.S. Paluch Co., Messner Publications and Our Sunday Visitor. Existing sustaining sponsors also include American Heritage Girls, Catholic TV, Holy Spirit College and the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Atlanta.

Contributing sponsors for the 2012 Eucharistic Congress include the Augustine Institute, Catholic Relief Services, EWTN Global Catholic Network, Georgia United Credit Union and the Serra Club of Metropolitan Atlanta.
