This stark reality inspired the Bishops of the United States to action. More than an event or a program, they envisioned a true Revival to rediscover the source and summit of our Faith through a deep commitment of prayer, pilgrimage, and worship on the part of the entire Church in the United States.
Over three years, every Catholic diocese, parish, school, apostolate, and family is invited to be a part of renewing the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
To renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
To inspire a movement of Catholics across the United States who are healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—and who are then sent out on mission “for the life of the world.”
The Three Phases of the National Eucharistic Revival
The Diocesan Year
This first year of the Revival invited bishops, priests, and diocesan staff to respond to the Lord’s personal invitation while planning how to share this love with the faithful. While many dioceses began their Eucharistic events and outreaches, the heart of the first year was to pray and fast as we asked Our Lord to revive his Church.
The Parish Year
The Revival is now reaching the pews! This year is about fostering Eucharistic devotion at the parish level, strengthening our liturgical life through the faithful celebration of the Mass, Eucharistic adoration, missions, resources, preaching, and organic movements of the Holy Spirit. Find out about how parishes are answering the call.
The National Year of Mission
Having enkindled a missionary fire in the hearts of the American faithful, the Holy Spirit will send us out on mission to share the gift of our Eucharistic Lord as we enter the universal Church’s jubilee year in 2025.
