National Eucharistic Revival

“Evangelization leads to the Eucharist, since the Eucharist is the fullness of communion with Jesus and his whole Church. On the other hand, the Eucharist leads to evangelization, since our ability to announce the Gospel springs from the passion and resurrection of Christ which is made present anew in the Eucharist”. 

—Unleash the Gospel Marker 3.4 , Archbishop Alan Vigneron - Archdiocese of Detroit

What is the Eucharistic Revival?

In John 6:51, Jesus proclaims, "I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I give is my flesh for the life of the world."  These words have great power and bring a radical promise.  Jesus gives us the gift of his very self.  Through this great gift of charity, we can have eternal life.  This gift changes everything in our lives.

Jesus, through the incarnation, shares in our humanity, and through the Holy Eucharist, he invites us to share in his Divinity.  This is a life-changing invitation to encounter him in the Blessed Sacrament enables us to truly love our neighbor as his loves: with a self-giving love.

Through this National Eucharistic Revival, we are invited to renew our love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.  This is a "grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist."  In communion with Bishops of the United States, through the invocation of the Holy Spirit, we pray for a fire to ignite in our hearts that unleashes a movement of Catholics across the United States.  That we may be healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist - thus, to be sent out on mission 'for the life of the world.'

When is the Eucharistic Revival?


We launched 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, Indianapolis, Indiana

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: June 21, 2024 - Pentecost 2025

Having enkindled a missionary fire in the hearts of the American  faithful, the Holy Spirit will send us out on a mission to share the gift of our Eucharistic Lord as we enter the universal Church's jubilee year in 2025.

The Eucharistic Revival is intended to be far more than a series of events or a program.

It aims to be a movement that enkindles a living relationship with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and renews the Church.

Bishop Andrew Cozzens

Chairman of the USCCB's Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis

The National Eucharistic Revival invites us to renew our love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, by providing a “grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. 

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. The term “Eucharist” originates from the Greek word eucharistia, meaning thanksgiving.
