National Eucharistic Revival
In late 2019, a Pew Study indicated what many had long suspected. Few Catholics, approximately 30 percent, fully believe in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.

This stark reality inspired the Bishops of the United States to action. More than an event or a program, they envisioned a true Revival to rediscover the source and summit of our Faith through a deep commitment of prayer, pilgrimage, and worship on the part of the entire Church in the United States.
Over three years, every Catholic diocese, parish, school, apostolate, and family is invited to be a part of renewing the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

Diocesan Phase: Year One
The Diocese of Winona is currently approaching the Diocesan Year, which we are kicking off with Ministry Days titled "My Flesh for the Life of the World: Encountering Jesus Anew" on June 14 and June 15 at St. Mary's University in Winona. Ministry Days will culminate with a Diocesan Eucharistic Procession, and all are welcome. More information on the time and starting location of the procession will be made available soon. Registration and cost to attend Ministry Days is now available HERE.
On Corpus Christi 2022, the Diocesan year begins with the Eucharistic Revival Diocesan Team meeting regularly and evaluating discussions from Ministry Days in implementing this revival in our local diocese throughout the year.
If you have any suggestions for ways the Diocese of Winona-Rochester can live out the Eucharistic Revival, please submit ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information will be coming out throughout the year with ways your local parish and deanery can encourage all people to have a deeper relationship with our Eucharistic Lord.
