50th International Eucharistic Congress

The 50th International Eucharistic Congress 2012 will take place in Dublin from June 10th to 17th 2012 under the theme The Eucharist: Communion with Christ and with one another, and expects 25,000 pilgrims to participate each day, both from Ireland and from overseas. It 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 and draw attention to the social dimension of the Eucharist.

These aims are achieved through a programme of pastoral preparation in the years leading up to the Congress and the actual week of the Congress that consists of a programme of Prayer, Eucharist, workshops, discussion groups, catechesis and testimonies, cultural events, a youth space, tours, exhibitions, a Eucharistic Procession, a massive closing ceremony in Croke Park and more.
