MONTEREY – The Diocese of Monterey in California, in collaboration with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, is inviting all Catholics of the diocese to participate in the National Eucharistic Revival.
In a letter to the clergy and laity, Fr. Gerson Espinosa Velasco, Eucharistic Revival Coordinator for the Diocese of Monterey in California, said that “the Bishops of the United States (USCCB) are calling for a three-year grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. They believe that God wants to see ‘a movement of Catholics across the United States, healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist — and sent out in mission “for the life of the world” (cf. John 6:51)'”.
The National Eucharistic Revival will officially begin on Sunday, 19 June 2022, the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (“Corpus Christi Sunday”).
The Most Rev. Daniel E. Garcia, 5th Bishop of Monterey in California, will be the principal celebrant of the opening Mass to be celebrated at the parish of Holy Trinity, 27 S. El Camino Real, Greenfield. A Eucharistic Procession will take place at 10am culminating with Mass at 11:30am.
The National Eucharistic Revival concludes on Pentecost Sunday, 8 June 2025.
