About the event
The bishops of England and Wales are holding a National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress in Liverpool in September 2018.
Eucharistic Congresses are gatherings of clergy, religious and laity which promote an awareness of the central place of the Eucharist in the life and mission of the Church.
The last International Eucharistic Congress in England was held in 1908 when permission for a public procession of the Blessed Sacrament was refused.
Participants will engage in a series of sessions focusing on different dimensions of the Eucharist and the daily celebration and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
DOWYM are hiring a coach to leave from Pinner for any young adults who would like to come with us. You need to get a ticket though your parish, but transport is free, and you can have a free red DOWYM tshirt for coming along with us.
