Where to Start?

Building Your Unique Revival Blueprint

The Eucharistic Revival is not a program to download or formula to follow. Instead, Our Lord is inviting you to follow his lead, meeting the unique needs of your community in the way that best fits the culture and character of your people. That’s what makes this movement grassroots

The ideas and materials to follow are meant to spark your imagination and creativity, not restrain them! Jesus wants you to bring your God-given gifts and talents and perspectives to this mission—your whole self.

Reinvigorating Worship

Love Him

How we worship matters. Emphasize reverence in the liturgy and elevate the practice of Eucharistic devotions, prioritizing an increase in opportunities for adoration and both parish and diocesan Eucharistic processions. This provides a public witness while strengthening the faith and unity of Catholics in your community.

Deepening Formation

Seek Him

July 17-21, 2024

With more than 50% of Catholics not knowing the Church’s doctrine on the Real Presence, a bold clarity in the true teaching of the Church is necessary to bring understanding. Pursue robust formation through spiritual reading, educational events, and study groups. The more intimately we know Our Lord, the better we can love him, serve him, and bring other people to know him!

Missionary Sending

Serve Him

True love overflows into action! Mobilize those who already know and believe the Church’s teaching on the Real Presence to reach out to those in need and accompany those who are searching for more. Remember that this is Our Lord’s work. We are simply his instruments.
