Come Home to Communion
Join in the Year of Diocesan Revival
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: his Real Presence in the Eucharist.
The National Eucharistic Revival launched June 19, 2022 is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery here in the United States. This first year of the Revival, each diocese will offer events and resources to encourage the faithful’s growth in understanding and devotion to Christ in the Eucharist. June 2023-2024 will focus on fostering eucharistic devotion at the parish level, culminating in a National Eucharistic Congress and being sent on mission to share the gift of our Eucharistic Lord with our local communities and beyond!
Below are diocesan and local opportunities and resources to take part in this mission.
5th Annual ‘In His Real Presence’ Eucharistic Congress
A Eucharistic Congress is a Catholic Tradition dating back to 1881 in Lille, France where Catholics come together to celebrate Our Eucharistic Lord, nurture our Eucharistic Life, and bear witness to God’s endless Love for us and The Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist!
The 5th annual diocesan Eucharistic Congress will be held Saturday, September 9, 2023 at Our Lady of the Presentation Parish in Lee’s Summit. Watch video of our speakers from the 4th annual Eucharistic Congress.
