Beyond our parish doors, there is a wealth of events and opportunities with other Catholic organizations.

Revival’s in the Air

Encounter the Reality of Our Eucharistic Lord

The Revival is a grassroots movement of Catholics, each responding to the gift of the Eucharist in their own way. The mission of the National Eucharistic Revival is to renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist. This revival movement is in answer to a call by the Holy Spirit, and all the fruits belong to him. The revival is an unprecedented movement of Catholics across the United States—healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—sent out on mission “for the life of the world.” The Eucharistic Revival is not a step-by-step plan or a series of meetings. Rather, the revival is a grassroots call and a challenge for every Catholic across the United States to rekindle the fire of love and devotion for the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. Learn more, visit:
