Come to Congress

Walk-ins are invited to join in Eucharistic Congress and evening events on Saturday

By Tony Staley
Compass Editor

Providing that you're reading this before mid-afternoon Saturday, Oct. 14, it's not too late to participate in the Jubilee Year Eucharistic Congress for the Church of the Diocese of Green Bay.

The highlight of the Congress will be the celebration of Mass at 4 p.m. Saturday in Schuldes Sports Center at St. Norbert College. Bp. Robert Banks will preside. Bps. Robert Morneau and Aloysius Wycislo will concelebrate. The Sunday readings will be used.

Families are encouraged to participate both in the liturgy and in the evening activities that will follow. Or, if that's not possible, attend either the Mass or the evening activities.

These activities will include pizza and soda; music by family entertainer Ken Lonnquist; Christian comedy by Doug Brummel; international music and a Gospel message by the Maria Rodriguez Family Band; a one-man show on the Gospel of Mark by Michael Corso; and a production of Agape, a musical production based on the structure of the Eucharistic liturgy, presented by Resurrection Parish in Allouez. Meanwhile, Youth Jam 2000 will be under way in Schuldes.

Walk-ins are welcome and invited.

The importance of Eucharist cannot be overstated for Catholics. When we gather at Eucharist, we make Christ present through the actual celebration; through the consecrated bread and wine; and through each other because as members of the church, we are the Body of Christ.

Come to the Eucharistic Congress and plunge into these eternal mysteries and then continue the feast with a community celebration of fun and spiritual enrichment. I hope to see you there!
