International Eucharistic Congress in Dublin June 2012
IEC2012 marks the 50th International Eucharistic Congress with a symbolic Bell. Just as the Olympic torch prepares for the Olympics, the Eucharistic Congress Bell has been going all around Ireland calling people to prepare for the IE Congress since St. Patrick's Day 2011. The theme of the 50th Eucharistic Congress in Dublin during June 2012 is: "The Eucharist--Communion with Christ and with one another." On March 14th, Pope Benedict XVI received the Eucharistic Congress Bell from the IEC2012 delegation at the Vatican in Rome.
