EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS 2020 - JUNE 12-14, MEMBERTOU, SYDNEY
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO DESIGNATE A ‘YEAR OF THE EUCHARIST’?
Archbishop Dunn, in his November 17, 2019 letter to all parishioners, said, “through these celebrations [175th Anniversary] we rediscovered how God is always faithful to us. One of the signs of this faithfulness is the Eucharist and this is why we called for a focus on the Eucharist leading up to a Diocesan Eucharistic Congress. Our hope is that we can engage in strengthening our faith in the Eucharist, be led deeper into understanding and appreciating this gift of the Eucharist and grow together in sharing this gift through word and action. When we celebrate the Eucharist, we not only attend an event but we are drawn into the great mystery of love that Jesus revealed when he died for us because of his love. To draw us more deeply into this mystery, this Year of the Eucharist invites each of us to a deeper experience of encounter with Christ. My hope for this Year of the Eucharist is that the hearts of all Catholics might awaken in the Diocese so that we may come to a deeper understanding, appreciation, and experience of the gift of the Eucharist. We will organize a variety of events and experiences so that we might reach this goal.”
