What do the Lord Provost, a Member of Parliament and a football hero have in common?  
The answer to that question will be given this weekend at a unique event hosted by the Catholic Church in Scotland.

Glasgow's Lord Provost, Alex Mosson, MP Tom Clarke and Celtic's Tommy Burns are among the speakers at a special congress being held this weekend to promote the Church's teaching on the Eucharist.

The workshops given by Alex Mosson, Tom Clarke MP, and Tommy Burns will be held on Sunday at 1.30pm in the Thistle Hotel, Cambridge Street. The concluding Mass will be offered by Cardinal Winning at St Aloysius Church, Rose Street, at 3.00pm.

The "Life in the Eucharist" congress is aimed at deepening faith in the Catholic Church's teaching about real presence of Jesus Christ, body, blood, soul and divinity in Holy Communion. It involves a series of Masses, lectures, perloos of prayer and witness-sessions led by some of Scotland's best-known Catholics.

Cardinal Winning said: "I am delighted to bring such a prestigious event to Glasgow. This is the first time the Life in the Eucharist Congress has been held outside the USA. With speakers travelling from Rome, from South America and from many other parts of the world, combined with the testimonies of local people, I am certain that we have a unique opportunity to draw people back to their faith."

You are invited to send a photographer/ reporter/ camera crew to cover the above event.
