WHY:Beginning on the vigil of the feast of Pentecost, June 3, 2006 and continuing for two weeks, ending with the celebration of the great Feast of Corpus Christi, June 18, 2006, the Eucharistic Congress is a unique time in the Diocese of Rockville Centre. It is an opportunity for each of us individually, and for all of us together, to deepen our devotion, understanding and reverence for the Eucharist. A Eucharistic Congress has certain elements that form the structure and set the focus: prayer, adoration, catechesis and renewed commitment to works of charity. Each of these elements will be part of the diocesan and parish celebrations planned during the Eucharistic Congress.
