Bread For The World


A Celebration of the Eucharistic Life


The Society Bishops of the Northern Province extend a warm invitation to the rest of the Church to attend the Bread for the World conference. 


Bread for the World is a celebration of our Eucharistic life and promises to be an uplifting and inspirational three days as we pray, study and reflect together on the importance of the Eucharist as the source and summit of our Christian life – not forgetting the essential elements of fellowship and fun! 


Each day will centre around the Mass and prayer before the Blessed Sacrament during Holy Hour and will include Bible studies and key note addresses. We will make a pilgrimage to both the Cathedrals, starting at the Roman Catholic Cathedral and making our way down to our own Cathedral for Holy Hour and Benediction.  On the Thursday evening there will be a social event with a quiz and comedian (with a free drink on the Bishops!).
