Come to Congress
Walk-ins are invited to join in Eucharistic Congress and evening events on Saturday
By Tony Staley
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
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!
