The National Eucharistic Revival is a three-year initiative
sponsored by the Bishops of the United States to inspire and prepare the People of God to be formed, healed, converted, united, and sent out to a hurting and hungry world through a renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist – the source and summit of our Catholic faith. The Revival officially launched in June 2022, and its milestone event will be a National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis, IN, from July 17-21, 2024. The National Eucharistic Revival and National Eucharistic Congress are a direct response to the Holy Father’s call for a “pastoral and missionary conversion which cannot leave things as they presently are” so that the Church in the United States might be “permanently in a state of mission” (Evangelii Gaudium, n. 25).
This eucharistic movement seeks to bring together clergy,
religious, laity, apostolates, movements, and parish and diocesan leaders to spur momentum, collaboration, and lasting impact for the renewal of the Catholic Church in the U.S. over the next three years.
Year two: The year of the Parish Revival will begin on the feast of Corpus Christi on June 11, 2023. During the Parish Year, pastors will invite their parishioners and staff to become even more truly and deeply eucharistic communities through small groups,
increased exploration of the sacrifice of the Mass, eucharistic adoration, catechetical studies on the Real Presence of Christ, parish-sponsored processions, and other activities to enable deeper encounters with Our Lord in the Eucharist.
The St. Louise de Marillac Eucharistic Revival Committee has been busy planning many opportunities in the upcoming year to bring our parish and parishioners closer to the Eucharist.

The Eucharist Revival is a movement of Catholics across the United States, healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—and sent out on a mission “for the life of the world.” This movement was created to help renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
