1,500 children preparing for First Communion attend Eucharistic Congress in Peru

The Archdiocese of Cuzco, Peru, organized the First Children’s Congress on the Eucharist on September 25, bringing together more than 1,500 children who are preparing to receive First Communion in order to encourage them in their faith commitment. 

The event was organized as part of the archdiocese’s celebration of the Year of the Eucharist.

During the event, children were exhorted to a greater commitment to know and love Christ in the Eucharist, to pray for the children of the world, the make sacrifices for the missions, to be missionaries in their families and in other areas of their lives.

Archbishop Juan Antonio Ugarte Perez of Cuzco welcomed the children to the event and spoke to them about the love of God and Christ’s desire to “let the children come unto Me.”
