Eucharistic Revival

Renew Love for the Holy Eucharist in Your Diocese

Starting June 2022, the Bishops of the United States are calling for all dioceses to begin a three-year plan to revive and foster Eucharistic devotion in dioceses, parishes, and the hearts of the faithful. Ave Maria Press has collected its best resources to help diocesan and parish leaders with this revival.

Below see how Ave's resources, which align with the four pillars of the Eucharistic Revival to deepen the understanding of Real Presence and create a culture of Eucharistic reverence and devotion in the Church, can be used at each stage of the three-year timeline. 

2022: Year of the Diocese

Use our resources to form diocesan teams and parish leaders to a renewed love and understanding of the Eucharist.

2023: Year of the Parish

Use our resources to form small-group parish communities to deepen understanding of the Real Presence and encounter the Lord together through true reverence and devotion to the Eucharist.

2024: Year of the Renewal

Use our resources to prepare the faithful to go out and share the Eucharistic culture of love with their families, neighborhoods, and communities.

The Perfect Book for Your Whole Parish!

Normally $14.95, the Becoming Eucharist People (Special Edition) is available for bulk purchase of 100 copies or more for $2.99 each + FREE shipping!

We can’t just talk about Christ’s presence in the Eucharist; we have to believe it, celebrate it, and live it both individually and as a community of the faithful. And we must cultivate a culture in our parishes that treats Real Presence not only as an important Catholic doctrine but also as the most important part of parish identity.

In Becoming Eucharistic People, theologian Timothy P. O’Malley, author of Real Presence, outlines four essential dimensions of a Eucharistic culture in a parish—one that fosters reverence and unity among the faithful, includes every dimension of human life in the mystery of Christ’s Body and Blood, and invites people back to parish life or to become Catholic for the first time.

Prayer for the Eucharistic Revival

My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I beg pardon for those who do not believe, nor adore, nor hope, nor love You. Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. And, through the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and
 the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of sinners.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
