News from around the Archdiocese of Liverpool
The Adoremus National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress leaves us with very many happy memories and much to reflect on as we begin the month of October. The Symposium Day and the Congress Day at the Echo Arena; the Youth Congress and the many incredible events that made up the Parallel Programme. Then, of course, the Pilgrimage Masses and the great Eucharistic Procession at the Metropolitan Cathedral. The heavy rain came just as the procession began, but nobody seemed to mind; especially as the sun eventually shone for Benediction and the journey home.
It would be impossible to cover everything that happened over those special days, but I hope we are able to give a sense of the occasion. It would also be impossible to publish all the pictures, but there are over 1,500 available online at the archdiocesan flickr site (www.flickr.com/photos/liverpoolcatholic) and at the flickr site for the Bishops Conference (www.flickr.com/photos/catholicism)
This month we also reflect on the World Meeting of Families and the visit of Pope Francis to Ireland, and we look forward to Synod Sunday which will take place on 21 October and which is an important milestone on our journey towards Synod 2020.
