The Bishops of England and Wales will hold a National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress in Liverpool from Friday 7 to Sunday 9 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 Eucharistic Congress has been given the title Adoremus (Let us adore). Every diocese in England and Wales will take part.
Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle participation: Bishop Seamus is keen for the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle to take a full and active part in the congress. As such the following has been agreed:
Saturday Attendance of Partnership delegates
Each partnership has been allocated 17 tickets for the Saturday event at the Liverpool Echo Arena. The costs of travel and participation in the event for these delegates will be met by the partnership. If you would like to attend the Saturday of the Congress, please contact your parish priest.
Friday and Sunday Attendance
If you wish to take part in the events on the Friday or the Sunday of the Congress, please speak to your parish priest. Places for these days are limited.
