In a gesture of unity and faith, Catholic singers representing fifteen countries came together to perform “Around your table”, the official anthem of the 53rd International Eucharistic Congress. This joint effort, led by the IEC 2024 Musical Commission, has given rise to a musical collaboration that transcends borders, highlighting the importance of this Congress of great relevance to the world.

Father Jhan Wilson Morales, President of said Commission, explained the process behind this production, highlighting the importance of taking this anthem to a broader level. To achieve this, we worked with several international producers and had the participation of Catholic singers from countries such as the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Brazil. In addition, the winners and finalists of the anthem contest in Ecuador joined, which further enriched this song.

“Around your table” seeks to enrich hearts and highlight the evangelizing message through contemporary music, inviting people to gather around the Lord’s table and sing his greatness. For Father Morales, “the stanzas develop the meaning of the sacrament from its mystical aspect, recognizing the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, which accompanies us and strengthens us in our lives.”

This anthem was presented on May 10, 2023, after having gone through a contest open to the general public. “Around your table” was created by Marco Antonio Espín and the Solideo group, composed of Br. Oscar Santiago Castro España, Br. José Duván Delgado Ruiz and Br. Ángel Arturo Prieto Zagal.

Fray Oscar Castro, member of the Solideo group, shared his excitement for being part of this collaboration, highlighting how Catholic music can reach different corners of the country and the world, filling those who listen to it with joy and prayer.

The 53rd International Eucharistic Congress will take place from September 8 to 15, 2024.
