EucharisticRevival

Strategic Pillars from the National Revival

These Strategic Pillars come from the National Eucharistic Revival, and as a diocese we will be implementing outreach that meets all 5 pillars (listed in bold print):

 

 

 Foster encounters with Jesus through kerygmatic proclamation and experiences of Eucharistic               devotion.  The Diocese of Winona-Rochester will provide ways to experience our Eucharistic Lord in each deanery throughout the Diocesan Year (Phase One).

 

 

 Contemplate and proclaim the doctrine of the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist through the         Truth of our teaching, Beauty of our worship, and Goodness of our accompaniment of persons in           poverty and those who are vulnerable.  We will work with Catholic Charities, St. Vincent de Paul,      etc. to live out our Baptismal call to be Eucharistic people to the peripheries.

 

 Empower grassroots creativity by partnering with movements, apostolates, parishes, and                           educational institutions.  Highlighting activities already happening in our parish, we will make       them more accessible and known to all.

 

 

         

 Reach the smallest unit: parish small groups and families.  The Diocese of Winona-Rochester seeks     to empower parishes as we enter the Parish Year in Phase Two.

 

 

Embrace and learn from the various rich intercultural Eucharistic traditions.  By tapping into our          wider Diocesan community, we will listen and learn from current Eucharistic practices from          various cultures and demographics.
