Rockford Diocese Opens Eucharistic Revival June 19

In the May 27 issue of The Observer, Bishop David Malloy explained, in his regular column on page 2, that “it is no secret that faith in the Eucharist has diminished today.” That is why the Bishops of the United States are sponsoring a National Eucharistic Revival.

Bishop David Malloy and the Diocese of Rockford will join in the opening of this revival on June 19 with the celebration of Mass at 11 a.m. at the Cathedral of St. Peter, Rockford followed by a Eucharistic procession from the Cathedral to the Our Lady of Guadalupe Prayer Garden for prayer and adoration. The procession will resume back to the Cathedral for Benediction. The public is invited to attend.


To contribute to this revival, parishes and all the faithful are invited to begin praying the official Eucharistic Revival Corpus Christi Novena, starting on Friday, June 10th.

What is the National Eucharistic Revival?

The National Eucharistic Revival, NER, is a three-year initiative sponsored by the Bishops of the United States to inspire and prepare the People of God to be formed, healed, converted, united, and sent out to a hurting and hungry world through a renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist — the Source and Summit of our Catholic faith. The National Eucharistic Revival and National Eucharistic Congress are a direct response to the Holy Father’s call for a “pastoral and missionary conversion which cannot leave things as they presently are” so that the Church in the United States might be “permanently in a state of mission” (Evangelii Gaudium, n. 25).

This Eucharistic movement seeks to bring together clergy, religious, laity, apostolates, movements, and parish and diocesan leaders to spur momentum, collaboration, and lasting impact for the renewal of the Catholic Church in the U.S. over the next three years. The milestone event of the Revival will be a National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis, IN, from July 17-21, 2024.

See the NEWS tab above for all the latest news and events at SKD!

This year’s theme for the 2022 Diocesan Appeal is “Do You Love Me?” – the more love we have for Jesus, the more our love for Him will motivate us to love one another. It is during this busy time of year each year that we act together as a parish and help care for the larger Church of the Diocese of Rockford – we show our love for one another.

What we give in support to the Diocesan Appeal comes back to help us in many ways! The appeal is so important to us and our Diocese. Please remember that whatever we raise beyond this goal returns to our parish.
