National Eucharistic Revival
Mission of the Eucharistic Revival:
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.”
June 19, 2022
Year of Diocesan Revival
Launching on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, join us in prayer for the renewal and healing of the United States as we answer this historic call to revival. Events will be announced at a later date.
June 11, 2023
Year of Parish Revival
Eucharistic devotion will be fostered at the parish level, strengthening our liturgical life through eucharistic adoration, missions, resources, preaching and organic movements of the Holy Spirit.
July 17-19, 2024
National Eucharistic Congress
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.
July 17, 2024
National Year of Mission
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!
What is the National Eucharistic Revival?
A three-year initiative sponsored by the Bishops of the United States to inspire and prepare the People of God to be formed, healed, converted, united, and sent out to a hurting and hungry world through a renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist – the source and summit of our Catholic faith.
The difficulties and challenges over the last few years have shed lights on the Church’s need for healing, unity, formation, and conversion. More than 30 percent of Catholics have not returned to the pews post-pandemic, and recent data reveals that the majority of Mass-going Catholics do not believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. The past decade has also seen the rise of the “nones” among the millennial generation, with more than 40 percent now self-identifying as “unaffiliated” with any religion. Many young Catholics find the faith to be irrelevant to the meaning of their lives and challenges.
