Celtic Tours World Vacations is pleased to announce Pilgrimage Packages to Ireland for the 50th International Eucharistic Congress in Dublin, Ireland from Sunday June 10 to the 17th, 2012.

Once every 4 years, somewhere in the world over 500,000 people gather in a Eucharistic Congress to bear witness and promote an awareness of the central place of the Eucharist in the life and mission of the Catholic Church. This year, Dublin welcomes world-wide pilgrims to its emerald isles for 8 days of worship through mass, prayer and liturgical celebrations; film, music and theater, keynote addresses, workshops and discussion groups. International pilgrims from 5 continents are expected to join in the celebrations from June 10 ? 17, 2012. Presently parish communities, prayer groups, clergy members and individual pilgrims are gearing up to embark on this amazing journey of faith.

Ireland is a prime spot for the 50th International Eucharistic Congress because of its well-established Christian faith, dating back to the 4th century when St. Patrick traveled throughout Ireland converting and instructing believers in the Christian faith. Religious Pilgrims will find centuries old monastic sites, high crosses, elevating cathedrals and highly illuminated monastic manuscripts giving a glimpse into how early Christians worshipped and announced their religious fervor.

### Announces Launch of New Book — Major Religions of the World — Revisited

Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 13, 2008

Robert Fawcett, the author has been writing about religion since the last ten years during which his initial writings took the form of a short and succinct essay that recorded his learning about the Anglican Communion and provided a snapshot of this world wide community. Robert is mindful of the fact that some common questions that keep cropping up are about the origins of the Church, the divide between the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Catholic Church and its reasons as well as its fallout. He explores all these in his collection of essays that has been aptly titled, “The Church, The Holy Catholic Church, How It came to be ….and other curiosities.”

The latest book release, Major Religions of the World Revisited deals with the ‘Other Curiosities’ so to speak and provides a brief capsule on the other religions like Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and Judaism. Being a Businessman turned Religious writer, Robert Fawcett’s perspective is that of the common man who seeks to analyze death, the transient nature of life on this earth and to identify the difference between the religions practiced by him and by those in other parts of the world.

Postulating on the attractive aspects of his recently released book Robert Fawcett says, “The reader does not have to read several books on this subject. It is a synopsis of each religion, and the reader can further research the subject at will.”


Robert Fawcett is a businessman turned author. After writing essays and papers on the subject of religion, he was encouraged to turn this study on the major religions into this book. The recent release is not intended to add the million scholarly books on the subject of comparative religion, instead it serves to give a peek into the mind of this rancher turned Businessman turned religious author who is willing to take readers on an inner journey on a path oft traveled by each one of us at some time or the other.
