  1. Appoint a parish coordinator who can promote parish and diocesan events in the parish and have contact with the diocese

  3. Eucharistic Adoration during “Welcome Home” Reconciliation on Mondays in Lent
  4. Promote Eucharistic Adoration and Catechesis for parishioners, schools, religious education programs
  5. Invite the Office of Worship to offer formation for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and Readers
  6. Promote social media graphics and messages centered on the Eucharist
  7. Consider offering Eucharistic processions on special occasions/feast days throughout the year
  8. Promote, livestream, and take pictures, where possible, of your parish initiatives for the Eucharistic Revival.
  9. Add an intention in the Universal Prayer for a renewed Eucharistic life
  10. Consider ways to invite those who may not be connected to the parish to get to know the community and to get to know more about Jesus Christ.


"The Eucharist is 'the source and summit of the Christian life.' 'The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch.'" - Catechism of the Catholic Church 1324
