Eucharistic Congresses are gatherings of clergy, religious and laity who promote an awareness of the central place of the Eucharist in their life and mission of the Church. Each diocese in England and Wales will take part in the Congress and the Cardinal encourages people to make the pilgrimage to the Eucharistic Congress. Each parish is invited to send two representatives. If you would like to be considered for this please speak to Revd Fr. Kevin St Aubyn, Parish Priest.
