EUROPE: IRELAND: EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS NEW WEBSITE
The Bishops of Ireland have commissioned a WEBSITE for the promotion of the the 50th International Eucharistic Congress. This site offers information, links, pictures and video on the congress. They are also accepting volunteers and DONATIONS to help. This will be the 50th congress to have taken place internationally. The theme for this congress is: Communion with Christ and with one another.
A Eucharistic Congress is an international gathering of people which aims to:
promote an awareness of the central place of the Eucharist in the life and mission of the Catholic Church
help improve our understanding and celebration of the liturgy
draw attention to the social dimension of the Eucharist.
The Congress normally takes place every four years. The daily celebration of the Eucharist is at the very heart of the Congress.
The 50th International Eucharistic Congress
The wider programme of the Congress includes other liturgical events, cultural events, catechesis and testimonies, and workshops during the week of the Congress. The most recent Congress was held in Quebec in 2008 and was a source of encouragement and renewal for the many thousands to took part. Source: iec2012
