You are never alone. In your brokenness, sorrows, and frustrations, Jesus wants to say to you, “I am here.”
The National Eucharistic Revival is now underway. It is a three-year grassroots initiative of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist led by the Bishops of the United States. It is designed to provide purpose, connection, healing, and nourishment –– the answer to every longing of the human heart is contained in the gift of the Holy Eucharist. Here’s what’s in store:
- Year of Diocesan Revival (June 2022 through June 2023), which invites diocesan staff, bishops, and priests to what Pope Francis has described as “a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ”—particularly the transforming power and mercy of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. Each Diocese will offer events that encourage the faithful to grow in their understanding and devotion to Christ in the Eucharist, complemented by online formation and resources that will raise up Eucharistic Missionaries at all levels of the Church!
- Year of Parish Revival (June 2023 through June 2024) fosters eucharistic devotion at the parish level, strengthening our liturgical life through eucharistic adoration, missions, resources, preaching, and organic movements of the Holy Spirit. These local efforts will help convert hearts and minds to fall more deeply in love with Jesus Christ, truly present in the Holy Eucharist.
- National Eucharistic Congress (July 17 – July 19, 2024) more than 100,000 Catholics of all ages will gather in Indianapolis to worship our Risen Lord in his humble disguise. The Holy Spirit will enkindle a missionary fire in the heart of our nation as we reconsecrate ourselves to the source and summit of our faith.
- National Year of Mission (July 2024 – June 2025) From the Congress in 2024 through Pentecost of 2025, the entire American Church will be sent on a mission to share the gift of our Eucharistic Lord with their local communities and beyond.
In partnership with the Archdiocese of Detroit, we are looking for you to share your stories of encountering Jesus in the Eucharist using this form. Your story will bring hope to others across our parish, and across the nation.
