|Croke Park, Dublin, being prepared for the final Mass of the International Eucharistic Congress 2012|
The Eucharistic Congress comes to an end this Sunday, June 17th 2012 with the Closing Mass at Croke Park, to be celebrated by the Papal Legate to the Eucharistic Congress, Cardinal Marc Oullet. Ceremonies begin at 1.00pm. An attendance of 80,000 people is expected. 19 parishioners will represent Sacred Heart Parish at the Mass. Of course, at all Sunday Masses in Sacred Heart Church, we will be conscious of our communion with all those attending the Congress and again, as we have done all week, we will consider our celebrations to be part of the Congress itself.
The Closing Mass will be shown live on RTE and EWTN.
