Eucharistic Revival

Register Now for the Historical Eucharistic Revival Pilgrimage, July 17-21

The long-awaited National Eucharistic Revival, a once-in-a-lifetime event, is set to take place in Indianapolis from July 17-21, 2024, marking the first occurrence in 83 years. Organized by the Eucharistic Revival Committee for the Diocese of St. Augustine in collaboration with Corporate Travel (CTS), preparations are underway to ensure a memorable experience for all attendees.

As we eagerly anticipate flight pricing details, we are pleased to share preliminary information on hotel accommodation and ticket availability. The Diocese of St. Augustine has secured 200 tickets for this spiritual pilgrimage, which will be accompanied by Bishop Erik Pohlmeier. While the possibility of obtaining additional tickets exists, securing hotel space is currently a challenging endeavor. Single rooms are in high demand, and if you opt for a double room, it is essential to select your roommate in advance.

Registration for this remarkable diocesan pilgrimage is now open, and the comprehensive package includes:

  • National Eucharistic Revival Pass for a duration of 5 days.
  • Four nights of accommodation.
  • Single room: $1,499 (includes a 5-day pass).
  • Double room: $999 (includes a 5-day pass).
  • Triple/Quad room: $799 (includes a 5-day pass).
  • A daily continental breakfast to start your day off right.

Additionally, we will soon introduce the following options as they become available:

  • Motorcoach service for transportation from the airport to your hotel and the event venue, as needed.
  • Flight options to Indianapolis, with departures from Orlando and Jacksonville.

This extraordinary event promises to be a spiritually enriching experience, and we encourage you to secure your place in history by registering for this National Eucharistic Revival pilgrimage today. Stay tuned for updates on the additional travel options we will be offering as we move closer to the event date.

What is the Eucharistic Revival?

The three-year Eucharistic Revival initiative launched this year on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Feast of Corpus Christi). The initiative was called for by the United States Catholic bishops and is intended to form, heal, convert and unite the people of God through a profound and renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist. We are then called to be sent out into the world as “Eucharistic missionaries” to tend to the hurting and needs of the world. 

What are the Primary Goals of the Eucharistic Revival?

This Eucharistic Revival seeks to bring together clergy, religious, laity, apostolates, movements, parish and diocesan leaders to spur momentum, collaboration, and a lasting impact for the renewal of the Catholic Church in the United States. Grounded in prayer and responding to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the National Eucharistic Revival has four primary goals

1. To provide a more profound encounter with Jesus Christ in the Sunday liturgy as a point of unity among all Catholics, and through this powerful encounter, to find personal healing and courage to take the Gospel to a world in need of authentic love – the love of Christ found in the Eucharist.

2. To spark personal conversions through the joyful discovery of a relationship with Christ by encountering the love of God present in Jesus in the Eucharist.

3. To elevate the truth and practices of our Catholic faith through the rediscovery of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

4. To form, inspire, and launch missionary disciples, filled with the love of God and neighbor that comes from an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist to the margins of the church and the world.
