Fifteen thousand participants within Canada and abroad are expected to attend this major ecclesial event, in addition to thousands of others who will take part in public activities surrounding the Congress.

Catholics from all parts of Canada are invited to become Congress partners, first of all by taking advantage of this opportunity to renew their faith in the Eucharist, and secondly by helping to fund the numerous activities included in the program. A special collection will take place in Canadian churches on the weekend of the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, June 9 and 10, 2007.
