Congress Programme information is now live

Friday November 11, 2011

The Programme of the 50th International Eucharistic Congress is built around the daily celebration of the Eucharist and each day has a theme of its own, related to the main Congress theme The Eucharist: Communion with Christ and with one another.


The main events of the Programme take place in the RDS Arena. On most days these will be in the afternoon and will include:


The Catechesis: a “teaching” moment, usually presented by a bishop, reflecting on the theme of the day and its challenges


The Testimony: words of encouragement and inspiration from a lay-person with a story of faith to tell


Celebration of the Eucharist: Mass celebrated with all the Congress delegates, presided over by a bishop


There are some variations from day to day and you can see these below.


Alongside the programme in the Arena, there is a full programme of workshops and cultural events, many of which are now confirmed. In addition there is the Youth Space which has its own dedicated programme, details of which will appear shortly.
