Eucharistic Revival

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, (Corpus Christi), Sunday, June 19, 2022, began a three-year National Eucharistic Revival in the United States.

The mission and vision of this National Eucharistic Revival overflows with hope for a life changing experience of the Holy Eucharist—especially of the Mass—in the lives of all Catholics.


June 2022–June 2023: The Diocesan Year
The diocesan team will curate ideas, events and resources

June 2023–June 2024: The Parish Year
Every parish will strive to increase focus on and devotion to the Holy Eucharist

July 17–21, 2024: National Eucharistic Conference
At this historic event, more than 80,000 Catholics of all ages will gather in Indianapolis to reconsecrate their hearts to the source and summit of our faith.


    Leaving from New Haven, Connecticut, the eastern arm of the Pilgrimage will begin near the Atlantic coast, journey through our nation’s oldest diocese, and cross the Appalachian Mountains. It will pass through Ohio, and although it will not pass through the Diocese of Toledo, we encourage you to join the pilgrimage as it goes through central Ohio.

    As part of the National Eucharistic Revival, Bishop Daniel E. Thomas invites you to join him to witness what God has in store for his Church in the U.S. through the National Eucharistic Congress in July 2024! The Diocese of Toledo is forming a delegation to represent our local Church in this historic event at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN, where 80,000 Catholics are expected to gather to deepen our understanding of, love for, and living out the great mystery of the Eucharist.

    The Diocese of Toledo has reserved a limited number of tickets for this pilgrimage to the National Eucharistic Congress. Tickets are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

    Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who promises to remain with us always and who is ever present to us in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

    Reawaken our belief in His presence in the Eucharist and deepen our understanding of, love for and living out of this great Mystery. May this Sacrament of his sacrificial love be for us the sign of unity and the bond of charity.

    Nourish us through our worthy reception of the Body and Blood of your Son, so that we may enjoy communion with you and with one another. Make us living witnesses of your love and mercy throughout our local church.

    Send us forth as faithful missionary disciples, strengthened by the grace of the Eucharist to proclaim the Gospel, so all may know that the Living Bread Jesus gives is his Flesh for the life of the world. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    As part of the National Eucharistic Revival’s Diocesan Year, the Diocese of Toledo sponsored a contest for young people. Any parishioner or Catholic school student in Kindergarten through Grade 12 was invited to reflect on the question: What does the Eucharist mean to me?

    There were four divisions: primary (grades K-2), elementary (grades 3-5), middle school (grades 6-8), and high school (grades 9-12).

    Participants either wrote an essay of up to 1,000 words or create a piece of art, music, video, poem, or photograph. Prizes were awarded in each division, and grand prize winners were invited for a tour of Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral and a pizza party with Bishop Thomas.
