Prayers and Sacraments

Prayer Spaces

We have two prayer spaces at the Pastoral Congress which are open all day for pilgrims and families to visit and spend some time in prayer and reflection.

1) The Main Prayer Space

Visit the Prayer Space to pray on your own or as a family.
This space is also home to the Icon of the Holy Family, which will be here for the duration of the Congress.
The Prayer Space also has a Laudato Si’ corner, inviting pilgrims to reflect on and pray for our environment.
