What is the Eucharistic Revival?

Our world is hurting; yet, amid our fallen world, Christ is present. Jesus radically tells us in John 6:41 that “the bread that I give is my flesh for the life of the world.” The Revival is a grassroots effort to bring this radical, life-giving promise to the world, inspiring a “movement of Catholics across the United States who are healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist.”

We are now in the Year of Parish Revival, fostering “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.” This will lead into in the first National Eucharistic Congress in the United States in almost fifty years from July 17-21, 2024 in Indianapolis, which will be followed by a year of going out on mission “for the life of the world.” 

40 Hours of Devotion Schedule

Forty Hours Devotion is a practice of continuous prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. Stop by any parish any hour – day or night – when they are offering this devotion to spend time in adoration. Some parishes may also offer Liturgy of the Hours, preaching, fellowship opportunities, and more. Consult parish websites and bulletins for full details as well as benediction and exposition times.
