Previewing the next global Church gathering

January 17, 2012
Last year's major international ecclesial event was, of course, World Youth Day in Madrid. 2012 will also include a global Church gathering, this time for Catholics of all ages: the International Eucharistic Congress.
Many Canadians participated in the congress in 2008, when it took place in Quebec City. Now Dublin, Ireland prepares to host the 50th edition of IEC. As the congress approaches, Fr. Thomas Rosica speaks with its Secretary General, Fr. Kevin Doran, about the Irish Church, Celtic spirituality and what Dublin-bound pilgrims can expect in 2012.
