“During the coming year, I ask every Catholic and every parish community to commit themselves to deepening our understanding and experience of the Eucharist, and strengthening our Eucharistic liturgies.” – Archbishop Etienne
As we continue to walk with our Archbishop, we now have entered Phase 3 (Jan.– March) – We focus on the Real Presence of Christ in the liturgy, especially in the sacrament of his Body and Blood. Consider sharing and highlighting these resources with your school communities. YearofTheEucharistOverview
Year of the Eucharist Petitions – PRESENCE
For the Church, that we may grow in unity and peace through our celebrations of Christ’s saving love in the Eucharist. We pray to the Lord.
For the Church, that all of us may grow in our awareness of Christ’s real and living presence in the sacrament of his Body and Blood. We pray to the Lord.
For an increase in vocations to the priesthood, that many generous-hearted young men may respond to the call to serve God’s people, proclaiming Christ’s word and celebrating his Eucharist. We pray to the Lord.
For young people, that they may come to know and to love the Eucharist, in which Christ comes to us and the very work of our redemption is accomplished. We pray to the Lord.
