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.

Parallel Programme

As well as the formal congress programme there is also a parallel programme made up of talks, discussions, workshops, prayer opportunities and cultural events. The programme is aimed to complement the main events. This is a great opportunity to visit our neighbouring diocese during this significant event and enjoy one or two of the opportunities available.

There are also two Self-guided walking tours with an opportunity to discover the culture of the city of Liverpool and its Catholic history.

Full details of the parallel programme can be found here
