Ireland welcomes Carmelite Youth for the International Eucharist Congress


This year Ireland will host the International Eucharistic Congress (IEC) which will take place in Dublin from 10-17 June 2012.The theme of the Congress is “The Eucharist; Communion with Christ and with One another”.

For the first time ever there will be a dedicated Youth Space at the International Eucharistic Congress (IEC) “Go! Be Church, with Christ and with one another”. The Irish Carmelites are on the organising committee of the youth space and it promises to be a great week for young people (aged 17-25 yrs) with lots of different activities from contemplative prayer to social justice workshops. There will be opportunities for discussion and dialogue, meeting new people, and celebrating our faith together.

They are expecting over 2,000 youth and young adults from all over the world. To book your place at the Congress please see (Please note online booking closes on 9th May).

The Irish Carmelites are offering a limited number of basic accommodation spaces to some Carmelite Youth – please contact Marie on for more information.

As Carmelites We live our life of allegiance to Jesus Christ and to serve Him faithfully with a pure heart and a clear conscience through a commitment to seek the face of the living God (the contemplative dimension of life), through prayer, through fraternity, and through service (diakonia). These three fundamental elements of the charism are not distinct and unrelated values, but closely interwoven. 

All of these we live under the protection, inspiration and guidance of Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, whom we honor as "our Mother and sister."
