Adoremus National Eucharistic Congress and Pilgrimage Posted on Sunday 22 April 2018

From 7–9 September 2018, ten thousand pilgrims from across England and Wales will come to Liverpool for the Adoremus National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress.

The Main congress, which includes a full day of talks and exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, will take place at the ACC Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday 8 September. The event will be attended by two delegates from every parish in England and Wales. Tickets have now been fully allocated for this element of the weekend, however there are lots of other ways to get involved:

Parallel Programme
7 – 8 September
Various venues
The Adoremus Parallel Programme features a range of diverse events taking place across Liverpool, focussing on how we respond to the Eucharist in the way we live our lives. Highlights include:

‘Broken’, A Discussion with Writer Jimmy McGovern: A rare opportunity to watch an episode of the BAFTA-winning TV Drama and hear an inside account of how the programme, about an inner-city Priest, was made.

‘Eucharist, The Bread of Life’: An ecumenical conversation between Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, Bishop Paul Bayes and Rev Dr Cheryl Anderson which will take place at Our Lady and St Nicholas on the waterfront.

Lost and Found Gospel Concert: Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir and Frank Cottrell-Boyce tell the story of The Prodigal Son with songs from The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Judy Garland and others. Featuring The Ukulele Uff Trio.

The full programme is presented by the Archdiocese of Liverpool and many of the events are free. Details of all events can be found by clicking here.

Youth Congress
8 September, 10.30-5.30pm
Liverpool Echo Arena Auditorium
An opportunity to join a thousand young adults from around the country in a lively day to celebrate faith and to deepen an understanding of Jesus, the bread of life.

For those who have already applied, tickets are now available to be picked up from Cathedral House (Monday – Friday during business hours) or after Solemn Mass each Sunday.

Please note, you will not be admitted into the Cathedral without your ticket so please bring it with you on the day. Car parking will be severely restricted so we advise make your way on public transport or plan alternative parking arrangements.

The Cathedral will reopen to members of the public at 3pm.
