Bishop Gainer’s Letter on the Eucharistic Revival

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

“Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink.” John 6:54-55

On June 19th of this year, a multiyear National Eucharistic Revival began in the dioceses across the United States. This revival is not another new program, but rather an intense, purposeful focus on the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

SYNOD 2021-2023

The entire Catholic Church is called to participate in “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, and Mission.”

The Synod opened in Rome on October 9, followed by the opening in each diocese on October 17. This process is calling together all the people of God – clergy, religious and laity – to listen, dialogue, discern and pray. The goal of the Synod is not to create a new pastoral plan, but rather to be present with each other, learn from each other, and grow closer to the Lord and His Church.
