The Year of  Mission

Embracing Our Apostolic Roots

Jesus in the Eucharist is the answer to every restless longing of the human heart. If we truly believe this, then that living faith will compel us to share this joy with our brothers and sisters! That’s what the third year of the Revival—the Year of Mission—is all about.

This is an exciting new season of the Revival movement. The Holy Spirit has enkindled a missionary fire in the heart of our nation, and now he is sending out every member of the Church to spread the Good News—sharing the gift of our Eucharistic Lord with those on the margins. And YOU are invited to be a part of it!

If you feel called to live this mission in a way that’s unique to you and your strengths, we have created a Year of Mission Playbook just for you! Use this comprehensive guide to discern and embark on your Eucharistic mission. Download the guide below, and read on to learn more about how you can become a Eucharistic Missionary.

The Four Pillars of Mission

Pillar 1

Eucharistic Encounter

In order to lead people to a relationship with Jesus in the Eucharist, we have to maintain an active relationship with him ourselves. This pillar focuses on deepening that personal relationship through prayer, adoration, and the sacraments. Regular, profound encounters with Jesus strengthen us to be a more authentic and powerful witness to his love.

St. Charles de FoucauldVenerable Fulton Sheen

St. Charles de Foucauld and Venerable Fulton Sheen are beautiful examples of how Eucharistic Holy Hours empower evangelization.

Pillar 2

Eucharistic Identity

To truly live out our mission as Catholics, we must first embrace our identity as beloved children of the Father, shaped by our relationship with Christ in the Eucharist. This pillar emphasizes the importance of internalizing and living out the teachings and love of Jesus, allowing our Eucharistic encounters to define who we are. Through these encounters, our hearts and minds are transformed, guiding us to reflect Christ’s love in every aspect of our lives.

St. Mary MagdeleneBlessed Carlos Manuel Rodriguez

St. Mary Magdalene and Blessed Carlos Manuel Rodriguez exemplify how a deep Eucharistic identity inspires profound missionary zeal and service to others.

Pillar 3

Eucharistic Life

This pillar encourages us to integrate our love for Christ into every aspect of our lives, transforming daily actions into continuous acts of worship and service. As we love Christ more, our lives become configured to his, reflecting his sacrificial love. When we live a Eucharistic life, we join in Christ’s self-offering, allowing his love to flow through us to others.

St. Thérèse of LisieuxSt. Elizabeth Ann Seton

St. Thérèse of Lisieux and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton are powerful examples of how putting the Eucharist at the center of your life leads to personal transformation and fuels mission.

Pillar 4

Eucharistic Mission

This pillar is a call to evangelize—boldly spreading the Good News of Christ’s Eucharistic love and mercy in word and deed. As our love for Christ deepens, our lives will become increasingly configured to his mission, compelling us to serve others with his heart. We will be drawn to compassionate service, living our call to be his hands and feet to our neighbors and bring his presence to the margins.

St. Teresa of CalcuttaSt. Frances Xavier Cabrini

The legacies of St. Teresa of Calcutta and St. Frances Xavier Cabrini exemplify how a profound devotion to the Eucharist drives a life committed to evangelization and selfless service.

Where to Start?

For a personal approach to evangelization, start with the Walk with One initiative. This special form of heart-to-heart accompaniment is a beautiful opportunity to be God’s instrument in the life of someone you know and love.

Personal Encounters


No one who approaches their creator leaves unchanged. Create space for the faithful to gather in a moment of encounter with Our Lord. The Holy Spirit uses the energy created through gathering in a group as a way to usher new movements and transformations in our Church.

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.

What is a Eucharistic Missionary?

A Eucharistic Missionary is any Catholic who—inspired by an encounter with Christ in the Eucharist and fueled by the Bread of Life—allows God to use them as an instrument of his grace "for the life of the world." These missionaries embrace their deepest identity as a member of the Body of Christ and commit to living a Eucharistic life with a heart for those who are most in need, those who are lost, and those who are the "least." They follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit to spread the Gospel by word and deed.

Remember, you aren’t doing this alone. The whole Church is walking on mission together, and we are here to support you with resources, inspiration, and encouragement as you embark on this exciting journey.

Quote marks

The Eucharist draws us into Jesus' act of self-oblation. More than just statically receiving the incarnate Logos, we enter into the very dynamic of his self-giving.

Pope Benedict XVI

The Eucharist is essential for us: it is Christ who wishes to enter our lives and fill us with his grace.

Pope FRancis
Quote marks

An evangelizing community knows that the Lord has taken the initiative, he has loved us first (cf. 1 Jn 4:19), and therefore we can move forward, boldly take the initiative, go out to others, seek those who have fallen away, stand at the crossroads and welcome the outcast.
