National Eucharistic Revival
I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world. John 6:51
“Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith in the celebration of the Eucharist. The National Eucharistic Revival is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery here in the United States by helping us renew our worship of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.” Read more
What is the National Eucharistic Revival?
The National Eucharistic Revival is a three-year initiative by the U.S. bishops that aims to inspire, educate, and unite the faithful in a more intimate relationship with Jesus in the Eucharist. The Eucharistic Revival is not a step-by-step plan or a series of meetings. Rather, the revival is a grassroots call and a challenge for every Catholic across the United States to rekindle the fire of love and devotion for the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.It is an unprecedented movement of Catholics across the United States—healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—sent out on mission “for the life of the world.”
This Revival launched on the Feast of Corpus Christi, on June 19, 2022. It will include a Eucharistic Pilgrimage that will pass through The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington June 7-9, 2024. The National Eucharistic Revival will also include the first National Eucharistic Congress in 83 Years. Tens of thousands of pilgrims will journey on pilgrimage to the National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis. Every Catholic is invited to gather in Indianapolis on July 17–21, 2024 to personally encounter Jesus in the Eucharist.
Why the National Eucharistic Revival?
Jesus is Calling Us Deeper
He promises to restore and renew his people.
Our world is hurting. We all need healing, yet many of us are separated from the very source of our strength. Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith in the celebration of the Eucharist.
The mission of the National Eucharistic Revival is to renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist. This revival movement is in answer to a call by the Holy Spirit, and all the fruits belong to the Spirit.
National Eucharistic Congress 2024
During this Congress, we will grow closer to the Lord and His Church and be sent on mission to proclaim His love and mercy.
There will be opportunities at the Congress for Mass, Adoration, Confession, prayer, and formation through a variety of speakers and workshops.
If you are interested in going to the Congress, please speak with your parish staff to see if your parish is organizing a pilgrimage.
