Scripture often speaks of the kingdom of God as a banquet. The image of people being at a meal where everyone is happy and welcome and where all hunger and thirst is satisfied gets across the idea that God loves, accepts and welcomes us and wants us to make that experience available to one another. We are commissioned by the Lord to invite people to the banquet of the kingdom, to the fullness of life – as parents, teachers, friends, etc.



The Eucharistic Congress Bell is a symbol of the Eucharistic Congress being held in Dublin in June 2012. During the year leading up to the Congress the bell is being brought to each diocese in Ireland. It will be in the diocese of Cashel and Emly from Thurs 27th October and Sun 6th Nov. The bell will arrive in Emly on Saturday eve 29th October. The ringing of the bell is an invitation to us to answer the call of God in our lives.
