The 51st International Eucharistic Congress will showcase the IEC 2016 Choral Concert, bringing with it the congress’ message of communion and oneness with Christ as the people’s hope of glory. The musical event is with FREE ADMISSION which will happen in four separate dates:

Let us celebrate the wonder of the Holy Eucharist as expressed in music and faith. Various distinguished choral groups – including those from the different universities of Cebu City – are invited to share their God-given talents. These choral groups shall uplift our spirits as they sing their hearts out for the glory of God. Everyone is encouraged to witness and feel the essence of the Holy Eucharist through the songs that will be performed during the concert.
The concert is designed to contribute spiritual benefits to the people as they reflect on the meanings of the songs. The event also looks forward to inculcate in the minds of the audience through the songs the significance of the Eucharistic celebration, which has as its very purpose the remembrance of the sacrifices and passion of Jesus. All they hymns that will be sung convey in one way or another the theme of the 51st International Eucharistic Congress, which is: “Christ in You, Our Hope of Glory.”
As we go on with our undertaking towards rendering honor and praises to the Lord through the Eucharist, we invite all of you to support this holistic step towards drawing everyone closer to the Church and to God.
