MISSION

To renew the church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

What is the Eucharistic Revival?

The three-year Eucharistic Revival initiative launched this year on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Feast of Corpus Christi). The initiative was called for by the United States Catholic bishops and is intended to form, heal, convert and unite the people of God through a profound and renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist. We are then called to be sent out into the world as “Eucharistic missionaries” to tend to the hurting and needs of the world. 

What are the Primary Goals of the Eucharistic Revival?

This Eucharistic Revival seeks to bring together clergy, religious, laity, apostolates, movements, parish and diocesan leaders to spur momentum, collaboration, and a lasting impact for the renewal of the Catholic Church in the United States. Grounded in prayer and responding to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the National Eucharistic Revival has four primary goals

1. To provide a more profound encounter with Jesus Christ in the Sunday liturgy as a point of unity among all Catholics, and through this powerful encounter, to find personal healing and courage to take the Gospel to a world in need of authentic love – the love of Christ found in the Eucharist.

2. To spark personal conversions through the joyful discovery of a relationship with Christ by encountering the love of God present in Jesus in the Eucharist.

3. To elevate the truth and practices of our Catholic faith through the rediscovery of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

4. To form, inspire, and launch missionary disciples, filled with the love of God and neighbor that comes from an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist to the margins of the church and the world.
