Eucharistic Revival


Jesus’ words in John 6:51, “I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I give is my flesh for the life of the world” make the radical promise that we can have eternal life through Jesus’ gift of his very self. This gift changes everything for us.

As the incarnate Son of God, Jesus shares in our humanity, and through the Holy Eucharist, he invites us to share in his Divinity. This life-changing invitation to encounter him in the Blessed Sacrament enables us to truly love our neighbor as he loves: with a self-giving love.


The National Eucharistic Revival invites us to renew our love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, by providing a “grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.” With the Bishops of the United States, we ask the Holy Spirit to ignite a fire that unleashes a movement of Catholics across the United States, healed, converted, formed and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist — and sent out in mission ‘for the life of the world.’” We will enter into this movement first as an Archdiocese, then as Families of Parishes, and finally as communities, as we continue to embrace our mission to Unleash the Gospel in southeast Michigan.



The celebration of the Eucharistic Revival on a national level launched on the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Jesus—Corpus Christi—June 19, 2022. We begin at an Archdiocesan level which will give an example for and lead to every Family of Parishes participating in opportunities to encounter Jesus in the Most Holy Eucharist.


The parish (Family of Parishes) Year of Eucharistic Revival will begin on June 11, 2023 and continue through July 17, 2024.


The Eucharistic Revival will lead to a National Eucharistic Congress which will be July 17 - 21, 2024 in Indianapolis, Indiana and July 17, 2024 — Pentecost 2025 will be a Year of Going out on Mission.



You can be part of this grassroots movement in a variety of ways within your Families of Parishes, throughout the Archdiocese, and at the national level. We will communicate opportunities for involvement as they develop.


The Eucharistic Revival in the Archdiocese of Detroit is a continuation of the work of the Holy Spirit among us to compel us to “Unleash the Gospel.” To learn more about the National Eucharistic Revival, we invite you to watch this free online course on The Mystery of the Eucharist, taught by Bishop Andrew Cozzens, to help “unpack the USCCB document on the Eucharist.”


As we approach the Parish Year for the National Eucharistic Revival, we invite all Parish Point Persons, or those interested, to register for webinars so that each parish is included. "Fanning the flame" of the Eucharistic Revival at your parish will also help Unleash the Gospel in southeast Michigan. Learn more and register.
