About the Sessions
Four parish based sessions between now and the International Eucharistic Congress in June 2012. Julie Kavanagh (a member of the K&L Faith Development Services team and the Interim Liturgy Commission) has prepared four sessions to help parishes link in with next year’s International Eucharistic Congress. These sessions will take place locally between Autumn 2011 & June 2012. The sessions will follow the four stages of preparation for the Congress, which focus on the four stages of the Mass. While linking into the Congress, the sessions will be firmly grounded in our own local experience.
Christ Gathers us as a Eucharistic Community (The Gathering Rite) Autumn 2011
Christ gathers us to listen, to hear, to be nourished and to be formed into community by God’s Word (The Liturgy of the Word) Autumn 2011
