    International  Eucharistic Congress , Quebec City 2008.
            The Tippelts share with us their  pilgrimage.


   " We submit these personal photos marking our pilgrimage to the 49th Eucharistic Congress. 
      Aside from the ark pictures, we took none at the Eucharistic City. 
      However there is a fantastic web site  which includes a gallery of
      spectacular images, day by day of all the events including aerial views of the
      opening ceremonies and the closing Mass on the historic Plains of Abraham.
