ASIA/TAIWAN - The diocesan Eucharistic Congress of Kao Hsiung to awaken the love for the Eucharist

Kao Hsiung (Agenzia Fides) - The Eucharistic Congress of the Diocese of Kao Hsiung will be held on April 21 on the theme "Mystery of Faith", in view of the 50th International Eucharistic Congress in Dublin (Ireland from 10 to 17 June), to awaken in the faithful the zeal and love for the Eucharist. According to information gathered by Fides, the principal moments of the day will be the Eucharistic Adoration, the Eucharist Procession and the prize-giving ceremony of extraordinary Ministers of communion in the diocese. The Congress will be held at the Shrine of the Beatitudes, which was inaugurated in December 2010 and is now a known place of spirituality and faith. Through the preparation and celebration of the Eucharistic Congress, the diocese intends to promote the spiritual life of believers centered on the Eucharist, which is the center of Christian life. According to information provided by the diocese, the first extraordinary Ministers of Communion in the dioceses were established in 1992. After 20 years, today they are the main collaborators of the Church in the pastoral and social work (visiting the sick, the elderly ...). On the occasion of the Eucharistic Congress the diocese therefore wants to reward their work, also giving a boost to young people to devote themselves to this mission. (NZ) (Agenzia Fides 29/3/2012)
