The mission of the “Eucharistic Revival” is to renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
This three–year initiative launched in 2022 on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, or Corpus Christi. Renewal began at the diocesan level, inviting 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.
After this fruitful year of preparation, the Year of Parish Revival began on June 11, 2023—also on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi. The year has been marked by historic initiatives, such as the first-ever National Eucharistic Pilgrimage. Grassroots creativity is springing up all over the country as love and devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist blossoms in the pews!
Then, on July 17, 2024, America will gather for the first time in 83 years for a National Eucharistic Congress. This historic moment will launch the United States into a Year of Mission, sending on-fire Catholics out to share Christ’s love “for the life of the world.” We will continue to spread the Revival movement throughout the Church’s 2025 Jubilee Year and beyond.
