National Eucharistic Revival

A three-year grassroots revival drawing us deeper into our devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. 


“Our world is hurting. We all need healing, yet many of us are separated from the very source of our strength. Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith in the celebration of the Eucharist. The National Eucharistic Revival is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery here in the United States by helping us renew our worship of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.” Read more.

“My flesh for the life of the world.”



The National Eucharistic Revival started in 2022 and will be continuing over these next few years. Together, we are igniting our hearts and opening our eyes to the presence of the precious Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, given to us as a gift of love and nourishment. Through the Eucharist, we are united with Christ and with one another as members of His mystical body, the Church.

We are now in the “Year of Parish Revival,” strengthening our liturgical life through faithful celebrations of Mass and Eucharistic Adoration.

With a focus on deep reflections through scripture reading, prayer, (both in parish workgroups and as individuals), as well as missions, preaching and organic movements built through the Holy Spirit, this second phase will foster Eucharistic devotion at the parish level.

Source and Summit is a great place to start in looking for meaningful content for your own personal reflections. Written by people in the Diocese of Owensboro, this blog series will give you scripture passages, prayers and the impression given from others.

This will all lead up to the National Eucharistic Congress happening in the United States for the first time in almost fifty years, where an estimation of 50,000 Catholics will gather in Indianapolis July 17-21, 2024.

We have used all our 250 passes to the 2024 National Eucharistic Congress with several people on the waiting list.  If you find your plans have changed and you cannot attend the Congress, please notify Kathy Doup ( or call 270-683-1545, ext. 387).  We can transfer your pass to another person. 



From this journey we will follow with a year of going out on mission “for the life of the world.”

We are asking you to be a part of this historic event. Participate within your parish, deepen your hearts in prayer through Adoration, find spiritual growth in your community. Invite your friends and neighbors. This revival is meant to foster a spirit of unity, love, and compassion extending out past our parishes and families and into our daily lives. In rejoicing in the gift of the Eucharist and celebrating our Catholic heritage, may it strengthen you as you live out your faith in this world.
