Our Eucharistic Journey 2018/2019
The Adoremus Congress
The bishops of England and Wales held a National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress in Liverpool in September. Eucharistic Congresses are gatherings of clergy, religious and laity, which promote an awareness of the central place of the Eucharist of the life and mission of the Church. The last international Eucharistic Congress in England was held in 1908.
In order for our young people to have a true understanding of Christ in the Eucharist and how this links to service in everyday life, it is essential that we work with and support our parents and parishes. Teaching the children who the Eucharist is and giving them a real and positive experience of the Blessed Sacrament will help to nurture the Church of the future.
Schools can help by:
- Communicating with parents and parishes
- Explicitly teaching about the Eucharist, Adoration and Benediction
- Providing them with various positive experiences of the Blessed Sacrament
- Linking with other schools and parishes in the Diocese to make this a memorable time in the lives of our young people
- Ensuring a legacy of the Congress
We have dedicated this year to be Our Eucharistic Journey as we seek to develop in our pupils a true understanding of Christ in the Eucharist.
Pope Paul VI, our patron will be canonised on Sunday 14th October in Rome. This event has inspired us to dedicate this year to ensuring our community continues to live out St Paul VI’s message of peace and justice in the modern world.
