Release of Special Commemorative Double DVD for 50th International Eucharistic Congress


The 50th International Eucharistic Congress Special Commemorative DVD, which captures the recent 50th International Eucharistic Congress (IEC2012) – held in Dublin in June 2012 – has been announced today. The Eucharistic Congress 2012 which took place from 10 – 17 June 2012, was attended by approximately 150,000, with several thousand pilgrims participating representing more than 114 countries in total.

The DVD, which goes on sale on the 9th November, includes footage of the Opening Ceremony and Mass in the RDS, the Statio Orbis closing ceremony and Mass in Croke Park as well as a ‘Would You Believe’ television special which aired on Irish television during Congress week. The all-regions DVD has more than 400 minutes of footage from IEC2012, which had the theme, Communion with Christ and with One Another.

Fr Kevin Doran, Secretary General of IEC2012, says: “The DVD gives pilgrims another opportunity to enjoy the wonderfully spiritual atmosphere of the Congress once again, as well as bringing the rich celebration of the Eucharist, as experienced by those who participated in the Congress, to those who were unable to attend.”

The 50th International Eucharistic Congress Special Commemorative DVD is produced by RTE Television in association with IEC2012 and Kairos Communications and is being distributed by Indi Entertainment. It will be available from the RTE shop, Veritas, Golden Discs, HMV, Tesco, Xtravision and other retail outlets and is priced at €14.99.
