Eucharistic Congress in Saskatoon

 — Oct. 26, 200726 oct. 2007

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon will be holding a Diocesan Eucharistic Congress from October 26-28, 2007. A Eucharistic Congress is not a common event in any diocese, so it will be as unfamiliar to Catholics as it is to other Christians. Essentially, the Congress is a period of intense study and reflection about the many dimensions of the eucharistic mystery. As Bishop Albert LeGatt describes it, “A Eucharistic Congress… is an occasion to gather all the baptized, the Body of Christ, for the purpose of giving praise to Christ for the gift of the Eucharist.”

The general theme of the Diocesan Eucharistic Congress is “Bread of Love, Life for All.” There will be three keynote speakers: Bishop Raymond Lahey of the Diocese of Antigonish, Nova Scotia; Fr. Edward Foley OFMCap, of the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago; and Sr. Theresa Koernke, IHM, of the Washington Theological Union in Washington, D.C. In addition there will be a full day liturgical music workshop with Bob Hurd, a youth program, and a series of 22 special interest sessions on various aspects of the theme.

A complete list of the times, titles, and locations is available on the diocesan website. Some of the highlights of interest to ecumenists will be:

Friday, October 26

Saturday, October 27, 2007

All events for the Diocesan Eucharistic Congress will be free of charge. There will be an opportunity to make a free-will offering at some venues.
