Feast of Corpus Christi - Sacred Heart Parish marks opening of Eucharistic Congress

The Consecration at the Mass for the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, celebrated by Monsignor Malachy Hallinan
Sacred Heart Parish joined in communion with the International Eucharistic Congress which opened in Dublin today. At all Masses, we were conscious of this, but especially at the 12.15pm Mass which marked the opening in a particular way. There was a large attendance and the enthusiasm and sense of devotion was to be felt strongly among the congregation.
Benediction was held and the Blessed Sacrament was then exposed for the rest of the day. Many people came to pray before the Blessed Sacrament during the day.
