The United States Bishops, under the leadership of Bishop Andrew Cozzens, have put forth a three-year plan to revive our understanding of and devotion to the Most Holy Eucharist! The Eucharist is the “source and summit” of our faith. It is the saving Sacrifice of Christ our Lord, made present to us in the celebration of the Holy Mass, and communicated most intimately through the devout reception of Holy Communion.
The timeline of this National Eucharistic Revival is as follows:
THE FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI
June 19, 2022
We launch our national response to the Lord’s call with widespread eucharistic processions and adoration on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.
YEAR OF DIOCESAN REVIVAL
June 19, 2022 – June 11, 2023
This first year of the Revival invites diocesan staff, bishops, and priests to respond to the Lord’s personal invitation and equips them to share this love with the faithful through eucharistic congresses and events.
YEAR OF PARISH REVIVAL
June 11, 2023 – July 17, 2024
The second phase will foster Eucharistic devotion at the parish level, strengthening our liturgical life through faithful celebration of the Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, missions, resources, preaching, and organic movements of the Holy Spirit.
NATIONAL EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS
July 17 – 21, 2024
At this historic event, more than 80,000 Catholics of all ages will gather in Indianapolis to reconsecrate their hearts to the source and summit of our faith.
YEAR OF GOING OUT ON MISSION
July 21, 2024 – Pentecost 2025
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.
