IEC2012 - Wondering what to do after the Congress?

Looking for resources and ideas for the Year of Faith and/or how to continue to reflect on the 50th International Eucharistic Congress held in Dublin in June 2012?

New resources for reflecting on the Eucharistic Congress have been released during the week. Stage 1-4 were offered by the IEC team over a 2 year periond before the Congress. Stage 5 is offered for this Autumn. Any parish or group can use the materials available HERE
To quote the IEC team:
"Stage 5 offers on the one hand the layout for a gathering of the parish community post IEC2012, which asks the question ‘what next?’ for a group who did follow the itinerary proposed by the first 4 Stages, while on the other it present first-timers with a gentle introduction to adult faith development.
It is based on the events following the return of the 2 disciples from Emmaus, looking at how Christ was to be recognised in the assembled community and in the sharing of their faith in conversation with one another.
This image from the gospel is well mirrored in the return of pilgrims from IEC2012, an Emmaus type experience, to their local Jerusalem and the community there with whom they live and worship.
The structure presented here can be adapted to facilitate reflection and discussion of any aspect of the Christian life. Its starting point is the experience of those present which is brought into dialogue with faith, and concludes focused on attitudes and actions that are fruit of having encountered the Risen Christ and embracing His mandate for mission."
