The London Eucharistic Octave 2023

Celebrating the Eucharistic Heart of the Catholic Church

Following on from the success of the 2021 & 2022 Eucharistic Octaves, we once again gather together in the heart of the nation’s capital to honour Our Eucharistic Lord, celebrate the richness of the Catholic Church and take to the streets of London to share the message that Christus Vincit!

About the Eucharistic Octave

3rd – 11th June 2023

The Westminster Parishes of Maiden Lane & Spanish Place, together with the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy, the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, and the Order of Malta, invite you to a week of celebrations, centred on the Blessed Sacrament.

Continuing the legacies of the International Eucharistic Congress in Budapest last September, and the 2018 Adoremus Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool, the Octave, we will be bringing Christ to the streets of London, and honouring Him in the Most Holy Eucharist.
