Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

We are excited to witness what God has in store for His Church in the U.S. through the National Eucharistic Revival! Our world is in desperate need of the love of God. Geopolitical crises, social unrest, increased polarization, and the need for recovery and renewal from the pandemic have created the opportunity to “open wide the doors to Christ” through Eucharistic Revival.

The difficulties and challenges over the last few years have shed lights on the Church’s need for healing, unity, formation, and conversion. More than 30 percent of Catholics have not returned to the pews post-pandemic, and recent data reveals that the majority of Mass-going Catholics do not believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. The past decade has also seen the rise of the “Nones” among the Millennial generation, with more than 40 percent now self-identifying as “unaffiliated” with any religion. Many young Catholics find the faith to be irrelevant to the meaning of their lives and challenges.

In the midst of these challenging times, we must increase our ability to provide to those inside the Church and to the world a credible witness of the difference Jesus Christ makes in the life of every individual. As the people of God, we must be reminded that the Eucharist truly is the living God, Jesus, with us, “always, until the end of the age,” (Mt 28:20).

As we set out to meet the needs of the world and culture around us with the love of Christ, we must first take time to experience our own Eucharistic Revival with a renewed encounter and love for Jesus in the Eucharist, “for the life of the world” (Jn 6:51).

Now is the time!

Grounded in prayer and seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the National

Eucharistic Revival has four primary goals:

  1. To provide a more profound encounter with Jesus Christ in the Sunday liturgy as a point of unity among all Catholics, and through this powerful encounter, find personal healing and courage to take the Gospel to a world in need of authentic love – the love of Christ found in the Eucharist.
  2. To spark personal conversions through the joyful discovery of a relationship with Christ by encountering the love of God present in Jesus in the Eucharist.
  3. To elevate the truth and practices of our Catholic faith through the rediscovery of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist – the Source and Summit of our Church and of who we are as a people of God.
  4. To form, inspire, and launch missionary disciples, filled with love of God and neighbor that comes from an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist, to the margins of the Church and the world.

The goal of the National Eucharistic Revival is to engage every Catholic in the United States! This is a movement, not a program, and is meant to provide opportunities for the faithful to fall deeper in love with Jesus in the Eucharist and to be inspired and equipped to share that love with others.

The efforts of the Revival are being organized by a team of lay men and women, religious, priests, and bishops from across the United States. An Advisory Board of Bishops is shepherding the whole Revival.

Everything about the National Eucharistic Revival is intended to “bear fruit that will last” (Jn 15:16). By building a consistent grassroots momentum beginning with dioceses and parishes, the intention is to bring together all facets of the Church – apostolates, movements, religious orders, universities, and ecclesial organizations  – all rooted in a shared love for the Eucharist that will create impact in the Church for generations to come.

The National Eucharistic Congress, Inc. was formed in early 2022 in order to bring such a large-scale event to fruition. It is led by a governing board of five bishops and four lay people, chaired by Bishop Andrew Cozzens, the Bishop of Crookston, MN.

The website www.EucharisticCongress.org has information, resources, and an opportunity to register individuals, families, and groups for the 2024 National Eucharistic Congress.

  • Pray and fast for the National Eucharistic Revival. Only the Holy Spirit can bring about the fruit He desires for the Church in America through this three-year initiative.
  • Sign up to receive the “Heart of the Revival” newsletter found on our website at https://eucharisticrevival.org/.

  • Get involved locally! Each diocese will be engaging in the Revival in different ways. Contact your diocese or look on your diocesan website for opportunities to be a part of your local Church’s Eucharistic Revival.
  • Plan now to attend the National Eucharistic Congress July 17-21 in Indianapolis, IN. Individuals, families, and groups are all encouraged to register to be a part of an extraordinary moment in the life of our Church.
