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.
Our annual Advent by Candlelight is scheduled for Monday, December 4 at 6:30pm. This evening will include beautiful music, an inspiring speaker, lovely tables and decor to get us prepared for Christmas, hors d’oeuvres, sweets, coffee, and tea served by our wonderful men’s ministry, fellowship, and most importantly— it will include you, the women of St. Katharine Drexel. If you are interested in hosting a table or joining the planning committee, please contact Layla Groleau at 630-673-1762.
