Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M. has announced that the Diocese of Trenton will begin the Year of Faith
proclaimed by Pope Benedict XVI with a Eucharistic Congress. Everyone in the Diocese of Trenton – and beyond – is encouraged to attend all or part of this gathering. This three day celebration of our faith in the presence of Jesus Christ in our midst will take place October 12 to 14, 2012 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel.
Friday, October 12 will be devoted to youth from 7th and 8th grade and high school. Priests and Seminarians of the Diocese will convene on Friday evening.
Saturday, October 13 will focus on the theme of Family for people of all ages, with special events for young children, young adults (20s & 30s), married couples and veterans.
Sunday, October 14 will focus on the many cultures and languages that make up the People of God.
Activities throughout the Eucharistic Congress will, of course, include Mass and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. There will also be opportunities to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Those who attend will be instructed, entertained and uplifted in faith. Set aside the weekend of October 12 to 14, 2012 and plan to gather, celebrate, and pray!
