50th International Eucharistic Congress Gathers and Remembers 1932

Monday April 23, 2012

The 50th International Eucharistic Congress holds a special event today, 23rd April, to recognise people who attended the 1932 Eucharistic Congress in Dublin.

More than 100 people will attend Gathering and Remembering 1932,  an event where veterans will reminisce and tell their personal stories about participating in the 1932 Congress.

There will be an exhibition of memorabilia from the 1932 Congress at the Gathering and Remembering Event. Veterans will also watch an archive film by Radharc which illustrates the significance of the 1932 Congress for Ireland and the thousands who attended.

As well as the Gathering and Remembering 1932 event, the 50th International Eucharistic Congress will facilitate people who were pilgrims at the 1932 Congress to attend this year's Congress.  Veterans from the 1932 Congress can attend either the opening ceremony, including Mass in the RDS, on 10 June 2012, or the Statio Orbis, Final Mass, in Croke Park on 17 June 2012.

If you attended the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin in 1932 and would like to attend the opening or closing ceremonies at the 50th International Eucharistic Congress, contact IEC2012 for more information.
