Jesus and the Eucharist Small Group Study

Small groups are a powerful way to see the fruit of the Revival at your parish! A study called Jesus and the Eucharist has been created specifically for the Year of Parish Revival and is provided to parishes free of charge, along with the training and support you need to be successful. A new video will be released weekly on this page throughout September and October so you can lead this study at your parish during the fall or beginning in January. Scroll down to access the videos, recorded trainings, and helpful templates.

As a Parish Point Person, your role in this small group initiative is first to discuss with your pastor whether to implement Eucharistic Revival small groups at your parish this fall or, alternatively, in the new year. Then, together with your Table Facilitators and, if applicable, your Jesus and the Eucharist Core Team, you can go through the trainings and planning documents below to be prepared for your study.


As you get started leading the Jesus and the Eucharist small group study, take some time to prepare with these resources:

    Small Group Training Resources

    Below you’ll find training webinars and documents to help you lead the Jesus and the Eucharist small group initiative at your parish. There are three types of trainings available, and we ask that Parish Point Persons and their Core Teams attend all three. Along with trainings, simple resources are available to help you invite your parishioners to this study and prepare for each session. Table Facilitators, who will be vital to the success of this initiative in your parish, will have one specific training they need to attend.

    It is recommended that the planning training be completed a few months before you start this study, followed by the Table Facilitator and Implementation Training closer to when you will begin, in order to ensure that you are prepared for a successful study. For example, if you are planning to launch this study in the new year, you can view the planning training now and begin your preparations for a successful small-group study.


    While this training is primarily for Parish Point Persons, if you have a Core Team, the members of that team should also view this training at their convenience so they are fully informed and able to assist you in planning the study at your parish.
