Gathering in Liverpool 2018
The bishops of England and Wales held a National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress in the Echo Arena, Liverpool, 7-9 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 Congress themes:
4. Ecclesiology – the Church
These 7 themes all linked to the centrality of the Eucharist, provide a very rich reservoir of material for reflection and discussion. They can be adapted by parishes so that the prime focus remains at parish community level. The impact of this Congress needs to be absorbed and consolidated in each of our parishes and schools because that is where it matters to every individual person.
PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH IN SOUTHWARK
Loving God, help us to be open to the freshness of your Spirit. Fill us with enthusiasm for the Good News.
Invite us into a deeper relationship with your Son, Jesus, truly present in the Eucharist.
Make us more aware of where there is need for new life.
Help us to reach out to those who feel lost or abandoned, those who are searching and questioning, those who have walked away from you and those who are eager to know your love.
We ask this through Christ, Our Lord, Amen.
