Below is the programme for the visit of the Eucharistic Congress Bell to our parish.

This is a very important event and an opportunity for us as a faith community to follow the ancient tradition of our ancestors and heed the sound of the Bell calling us to prayer. The theme of the Congress next year is

The Eucharist - Communion with Christ and with One Another”.

We invite you to take part in some of the short ceremonies during the visit of the Bell to our parish. Accompanying the Bell are Four Icons that will also be used in our prayer services These were especially commissioned for the Eucharistic Congress and it is our privilege to have them for 24 hours.

It would be great to see families coming together and spending time reflecting on their faith and relationship with Jesus and journeying with the Bell to the various prayer occasions that are planned.

Let us respond to the sound of the Bell.
