Come Home to Communion

Join in the National Eucharistic 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, dioceses offered 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.

National Eucharistic Revival Parish Year | June 11, 2023 – July 17, 2024

The National Eucharistic Revival is a momentous, three-year initiative that will bear fruit for years to come. During the previous Year of Diocesan Revival, clergy and diocesan leaders built the foundation for this movement to thrive at the parish level.

This year, beginning on the Feast of Corpus Christi on June 11, 2023, each parish will answer four key invitations.

Learn more about what to expect from this Year of Parish Revival and how your parish community is invited to respond.

BEHOLD KC | A generational Eucharistic celebration

Come together with our regional community of faith for a historic Eucharistic celebration and BEHOLD the true presence of our Lord Jesus Christ!

This free, public outdoor event is a gathering of the “one holy catholic and apostolic Church,” from the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph and the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. BEHOLD KC will include Mass, Confession, nationally-recognized live musical talent, local choirs and the largest Eucharistic adoration opportunity in our city in more than 80 years.

Gather with us on the evening of May 4, 2024 on the north lawn at the National World War I Museum and Memorial across from Union Station in Kansas City. It is a place of community, celebration, city pride and, as we experienced in February, a place where we are reminded of our broken world and our desperate need for God’s healing and mercy. There is no better time to BEHOLD our Lord.

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 took place on Saturday, September 9, 2023 at Our Lady of the Presentation Parish in Lee’s Summit. Watch video of our 5th Annual Eucharistic Congress speaker, Father John Burns
