National Eucharistic Revival

Eucharistic Revival Logo.png

In June 2022, on the Solemnity of The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) launched a three-year National Eucharistic Revival to respond to Christ’s call for us to unite around the source and summit of our faith: the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. The first year of the Revival focused on the local diocese and invited diocesan staff, bishops, and priests to respond to the Lord’s personal invitation and equipped them to share this love with the faithful through Eucharistic congresses and events.


The second phase of the National Eucharistic Revival recently kicked off on Corpus Christi (June 11, 2023) and fosters devotion on the parish level. During the year at St. Aloysius, we will strengthen our liturgical life through faithful celebration of the Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, resources, preaching, and organic movements of the Holy Spirit. Specific plans in our parish include once-monthly Tuesday evening Eucharistic Adoration with reverent music, the distribution of copies of Bishop Robert Barron’s This is My Body, a fall Eucharist study entitled “Jesus and the Eucharist,” and speakers on the Real Presence. This promises to be a wonderful holy year!
