|50th Annual International Eucharistic Congress (2012)
(Sunday 10th - Sunday 17th June)
This incredible event was held in Dublin and was attended by thousands of pilgrims, both from Ireland and overseas. The theme of the Congress, drawn from Lumen gentium was The Eucharist: Communion with Christ and with one another.
It was an international gathering of people, which aimed 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 and draw attention to the social dimension of the Eucharist.
