NATIONAL EUCHARISITC REVIVAL
June 2022 - June 2025
DID YOU KNOW that we are going through a national Eucharistic Revival?
Beginning in June 2022 and ending in June of 2025, the Eucharistic Revival is a three year movement to educate the laity and foster their devotion for the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. A recent Pew Form survey indicated that only 30% of Catholics believe in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.
To celebrate the sublime Eucharistic truth of Christ's Real Presence, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have initiated a three-year renewal in order to catechize the laity and spread devotion to "the Source and Summit of the Christian life" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, para. 1324).
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia will be hosting a Eucharistic Congress at Our Lady of Czestochowa National Shrine in Doylestown on Saturday, September 30, 2023. We hope to have a bus from our parish go to the Eucharistic Congress on September 30, 2023.
