The Catholic Church for England and Wales Last weekend 10,000 delegates from our parishes gathered in Liverpool for the National Eucharistic Congress For those who attended it was a profoundly moving experience. Our parish delegates, came back tired, joyful and enthused. For many, the highlights were Bishop Robert Barron’s talk on the Mass, the testimony from the Youth 2000 delegates and the Blessed Sacrament procession through the city streets.
There is much material to be shared. Most talks can be viewed or heard at:
