Eucharistic Adoration will not only be a daily feature of the Eucharistic Congress at the RDS but is a particularly appropriate way of preparing for this historic event. Accordingly there will be silent Eucharistic Adoration in the Church on Sunday 3-Jun from 3 pm to 4:30 pm to be followed by guided prayer and Benediction (finishing at 5:15 pm). Silent Eucharistic Adoration also takes place every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (for times see the Church notice board). Please participate if you can to invoke Our Lord's blessing on the Congress and to pray that it will help bring reconciliation, healing, hope and renewal to the whole community of our Church in Ireland.
