Eucharistic Congress Bell, Killeeshil Parish

The Eucharistic Congress Bell has its origins in the Dominican Convent, in Portstewart, Co. Derry.

The bell is a reminder of the tradition of St. Patrick's Bell and represents the call to faith, prayer, conversion and the vocation to service and mission.

The bell will be brought on foot from diocese to diocese by teams of volunteers.

It is hoped that it will be a focal point for gathering and for prayer, in cathedrals, parish churches and places of pilgrimage between now and June 2012.
