National Eucharistic Revival

After a Pew Research study from 2019 stated that nearly 70% of Catholics do not believe that the bread and wine actually become the Body and Blood of Jesus, the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops discerned the call of the Lord to launch a National Eucharistic Revival. Its mission is to renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist. The bishops want the Revival 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.”

June 2022 – June 2023
Launching on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, or Corpus Christi, the first year 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.

June 2023 – June 2024
The second phase will foster eucharistic devotion at the parish level, strengthening our liturgical life through eucharistic adoration, missions, resources, preaching, and organic movements of the Holy Spirit.

July 2024: National Eucharistic Conference

This historic event will bring Catholics of all ages to gather in Indianapolis for the worship of 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.

July 2024 – July 2025
From the Congress in 2024 through Pentecost of 2025, the entire American Church will be sent on mission to share the gift of our Eucharistic Lord with their local communities and beyond. Let the light shine forth!
