Towards the Eucharistic Congress

Embracing our Deeper Mission

Dur­ing the last sev­er­al weeks, arti­cles have been appear­ing here in the One Voice about the upcom­ing Dioce­san Eucharis­tic Con­gress to be held at the Birm­ing­ham-Jef­fer­son Civic Cen­ter (BJCC) on June 28–29, 2019. I am excit­ed about this upcom­ing event—particularly because it can serve as both a “wake-up call” as well as an opportunity…

Our Mission (Should we choose to accept it)

The word “Mis­sion” or “Mis­sion­ary” is one of those church‑y words that calls up imme­di­ate men­tal images. A com­mon word with what seems like an easy def­i­n­i­tion.

Any idea, any plan, any theme that has been men­tioned is fol­lowed up with these words. While the Church is engag­ing in con­ver­sa­tions about becom­ing bet­ter dis­ci­ples, or how to better…

What is a Eucharistic Congress?

The first time I heard the term Eucharis­tic Con­gress was in the mid-1990’s. Some­one was try­ing to refer to a com­mon­ly sung hymn, and he ref­er­enced it say­ing, “You know, the one from the Eucharis­tic Con­gress.” Well, I knew the hymn, but I cer­tain­ly did NOT know the Eucharis­tic Con­gress. The phrase called to…
