There’s so much on the horizon!
The Eucharistic Revival is a grassroots, Spirit-led renewal of the Church in the United States from the inside out––not a top-down program! Our broad, deep mission requires time for each individual, parish, and diocese to respond in their own way. Read below about our plans and hopes for the next three years!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Several months ago, after meeting with numerous groups of parishioners, our parish submitted a synod report to the Diocese. The Diocese has now compiled a report to send to the USCCB. Please follow the attached link to read this report.
Having just celebrated Corpus Christi and the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart , we need to maintain our focus on the Eucharist. Blessed Carlo Acutis who died of leukemia at 15 and was beatified in 2020, created a beautiful accounting of Eucharistic miracles over the centuries. Please use the link below to read about these beautiful miracles.
There is a press conference at 10AM on the Diocese of Phoenix website
