Australian resources for Year of Eucharist released

The Australian Catholic Bishops yesterday issued a program for the celebration of the Year of the Eucharist, focusing on the importance of celebrating Sunday Mass.

In a media release issued yesterday it was explained "The program has been designed using the dynamics of small group discussion which could be adapted to a large parish gathering or individuals."

The program has prepared by the National Liturgical Commission. It is set in the context of the Sundays of Easter and is linked with a proposal for a period of Eucharistic devotion from Trinity Sunday to Corpus Christi.

The media release says, "It is hoped that youth groups, parish groups, families and individuals will use the program. It will also be of much value to those undertaking the RCIA program."
