National Eucharistic Congress Adoremus 2018

Eucharistic Congresses are gatherings of all the faithful – clergy, religious and laity – which promote an awareness of the central place of the Eucharist in the life and mission of the Church. The last International Eucharistic Congress in England was held in 1908. The Congress in 2018 will be the first National Congress ever to be held in England and Wales.

Arrangements for Booking Delegate Places to the Congress

All delegates wishing to attend should do so through their parish or other religious community. This is to ensure that all numbers attending meet the allocated numbers required from each deanery in the diocese.

Any delegates who attend either Friday or Saturday are welcome to reserve places for either of the two solemn Masses which will be celebrated in Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral on Sunday 9th September.

The first solemn Mass is at 9.30am with main celebrant Archbishop Malcolm McMahon. The second solemn Mass is at 11.30am with main celebrant Cardinal Vincent Nichols. An outdoor Eucharistic Procession will commence after this Mass with Benediction at 2.45pm and the Congress concludes at 3pm.

All booking forms and payment, £40 per day (apart from Sunday), are to be made payable to’ Our Lady of Grace’ and returned to Mgr J Allen, Diocesan Congress Co-ordinator, Our Lady of Grace Presbytery, Fairfax Road, Prestwich, M25 1AS no later than 21st March 2018. If attending both Friday and Saturday, a separate cheque should be sent for each day.

Further details of payments online are available on the booking forms.

There are 22 dioceses participating and Salford is invited to send 780 delegates on the Saturday with a smaller number on the Friday.

On Sunday 9th September the Congress Masses will be celebrated at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral followed by an outdoor procession. People are encouraged to come for the day to Liverpool and to take part in or witness the Blessed Sacrament Procession through the streets of the city. This obviously does not require prior booking.
