The US Catholic Church has entered a three-year movement focused on Eucharistic Revival that began in June on the Feast of Corpus Christi. Chartered by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), the movement is designed to restore Catholic’s belief in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist.
Our Eucharist Revival Committee at Immaculate Conception Parish includes the following members: Zach Huber, Darren Perreira, Maureen Seely, John Balmer, Matthew Hall, and Dan Carney. Please contact any of us with questions and comments about the program unfolding.
The Eucharistic Revival Committee is sponsoring next weekend’s Advent reflection and colloquy featuring Fr. Dan McMullin. Saturday, December 10th, 9AM-12Noon in the Parish Hall. Please plan to join us for breakfast at 9 AM followed by Fr. Dan’s talk at 10 AM and Adoration at 11 AM. To help us plan for breakfast, please register for a ticket using EventBrite via the button on the right.
“How to get more out of Holy Communion” is a book that is highly recommended as spiritual reading. St. Peter Eymard, a saint who greatly loved the Eucharist, writes several chapters on how to properly prepare for Holy communion. Each chapter is short enough to be read in a few minutes before Mass, but each page will greatly increase your love for Jesus in the Eucharist. This is because St. Peter Eymard clearly reveals how much Jesus loves us, and how great He is to give Himself to us in the Eucharist every day and in our tabernacles!
On Nov. 5th, our Eucharistic Revival program will present the first chapter video of the Augustine Institute’s series entitled Presence: The Mystery of the Euchariststarting at 1pm in the Parish Hall followed by Adoration from 2-3pm and Confessions at 3pm in the Parish Center. The topic of the video ti-tled “God is with Us”examines God’s saving presence with his people through-out salvation history, culminating in the Incarnation and his abiding Real Pres-ence in the Eucharist. The video runs 35 minutes and will be followed by a short discussion and Adoration. Please plan to join us.The Eucharist Revival Committee is conducting a brief survey to gain an un-derstanding of topics, events, and devotionals you would d like to suggest for our program at Immaculate Conception. Please complete a card at Mass and deposit in the collection baskets as you leave the hall
