When ‘all of Christendom had come’: The Dublin Eucharistic Congress – Ninety Years On
The Eucharistic Congress of 1932 is widely recognised to be a defining moment in the religious, social, and political life of the Irish Free State. The thirty-first international Congress took place in Dublin over the week of 21-26 June 1932, with smaller celebrations taking place in towns and villages across the island. With the input of the church, politicians, individuals, and community groups, the event represented an unparalleled display of the Catholic faith in the state. Coinciding with the fifteenth centenary of Patrick’s mission to Ireland, the Congress was viewed as public reaffirmation of faith and the just conclusion of Ireland’s religious history.
