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 www.IEC2012.ie/youth (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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
