An open-air mass was celebrated at 11am 10th June to mark the opening of the 50th International Eucharistic Congress that takes place throughout Ireland June 2012. The previous International Eucharistic Congress took place in Ireland June 1932.

 

The mass was well attended and music provided by the newly formed Cathedral Gospel Choir, the Cathedral Choir & Choristers and the Mullingar Town Band. After the mass there was a Corpus Christi procession to the cathedral displaying the Monstrance. The procession was headed by the Mullingar Town Band and attended by The Right Reverend Michael Smith, Bishop of Meath.

 

It was fortunate the event was blessed with very fine weather and the event attended by a good crowd.

The Eucharistic Congress Bell is a key symbol of the 50th International Eucharistic Congress. From its origins in the Dominican Convent of Portstewart, Co. Derry the Bell was more recently used to ring in the Jubilee Year 2000 in Glendalough, Co. Wicklow.

 

The Bell will reflect the invitation to faith, to prayer, to reconciliation and to mission which has always been important in our Christian tradition and is no less so today. The pilgrimage of the Bell throughout the dioceses of Ireland, and beyond, will be a vehicle to:

•Invite people to deepen their communion with Christ and with one another

• Promote the pastoral aims of the Congress

• Invite all Christians to join in giving a common witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in an increasingly secular society

• Animate the people of your Diocese to become involved with the Eucharistic Congress both locally and nationally

• Invite people to come to the Congress from 10th to 17th June 2012

There is a strong emphasis on the inclusion of young people in the Eucharistic Congress Bell Pilgrimage however it is not exclusively a youth project. The pilgrimage should include the infirm, senior members of the community, and an outreach to the families and of the children preparing for sacraments (Baptism, Confirmation, and Communion
