Year of the Eucharist

June 14, 2020 - June 19, 2022

On December 10, 2019, Cardinal Sean O'Malley announced a Year of the Eucharist, in response to a Pew Research survey that indicated that only 31% of Catholics in the United States profess to believe in the Real Presence--that the bread and wine consecrated in the Mass actually becomes the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. The goal in establishing this special Year was to "invite and encourage our brothers and sisters to find the consolation of the Lord through participation in the celebration of the Eucharist and in times of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament." 

The Year of the Eucharist was intended to begin on Holy Thursday 2020 and last until the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the beginning of the Year was delayed until the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ 2020, and has now been extended until the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ 2022.

As we move through the Year, we will be offering Holy Hours, informative videos and presentations, testimonials, processions, and more. Please see below for listings of events and resources. We will also be exposing the Eucharist for adoration during scheduled confession times.
