50th International Eucharistic Congress

Parish Newsletter Resources for use in the run up to the Third National Collection

The majority of dioceses are holding their third National Collection in June and with that in mind we have prepared the following newsletter notices for use in parishes. For those dioceses that are holding their collections earlier or later than June, please just use these according to your own collection schedule:

Newsletter Notice 1: for use anytime during the month of May to flag the Third National Collection

Heading: 50th International Eucharistic Congress Communion with Christ and with one another

All large celebrations require a great deal of materials and preparation. The 50th International Eucharistic Congress in 2012 is no exception. There are many challenges involved and we want to ensure that the whole Church, both here in Ireland and further afield, will see the pastoral journey and the Congress, as opportunities to deepen our faith in the Eucharist. The third National collection for the Congress will take place on Sunday ________________. Your support, especially in these difficult economic circumstances is very much appreciated.
