Dynamic Eucharistic Preachers are visiting dioceses across the U.S.

Send forth your spirit, and you shall renew the face of the earth!

The National Eucharistic Preachers are a diverse group of priests who have been commissioned to enkindle the flame of eucharistic faith and devotion in the United States through kerygmatic eucharistic preaching. These 50 men will prepare our country for National Eucharistic Revival by guiding hearts to individual conversion.

What is Kerygmatic Eucharistic preaching?

Kerygma is a Greek word meaning “proclamation.” The kerygma of the Early Church was a bold introduction to the story of salvation in simple, accessible language. The first Christian preachers presented God not as a doctrine, concept, or theory, but as a Person who desires an intimate relationship with each one of us.

This approach shares witness testimony about the character of God and invites the listener into an encounter with him. When people hear the Gospel message presented in this way, they meet the Person of Jesus for the first time, often leading to profound conversion! In other words, the kerygmatic proclamation evangelizes before it catechizes for a deeper transformation.

Passionate preaching has been at the heart of every great revival in Church History. From apostolic times, the Eucharist has been the constant source of kerygmatic proclamation, predating even the New Testament. This preaching always flows from and returns to the Eucharist, where we encounter Christ most intimately.

As these National Eucharistic Preachers travel through our nation over the next several years, please keep them in your prayers! Come Holy Spirit!
