The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity promised prayerful support to the Catholic Youth Expeditions (an energetic community of Catholic youth from the Diocese of Green Bay and the Archdiocese of Milwaukee who reach out to hundreds of young adults and college students offering a fun and faith-filled camping experience) who are on their way to the 2008 International Eucharistic Congress in Quebec, Canada June 12-23.
The 2008 International Eucharistic Congress will be the assembly of the Church of Quebec hosting the Universal Church to celebrate the Living Christ. Its theme will be “The Eucharist, Gift of God for the Life of the World.”
This experience of faith will be held in a festive atmosphere, with believers of all ages coming together from every part of the world. The Congress pilgrims will gather for a week of celebrations from June 15 to 22, 2008, at the “Eucharistic City” (ExpoCité) where most of the Congress events will take place.
