Revitalize Parish Life and Spirituality
Living the Eucharist is a new, parish-based program designed to help revitalize parish life and spirituality through a more profound experience of Sunday Mass. It helps the entire parish—adults, teens, and families—grow in their Catholic faith and live more fully as disciples of Jesus.
Living the Eucharist runs during Lent for three years. Parishioners can take part in adult and teen faith-sharing groups, family activities, devotional and catechetical Lenten readings, and a prayer campaign.
The multi-media program materials are comprehensive, proven, and easy to use. Ongoing support keeps your parish on the right track throughout the program.
Pope Benedict XVI’s apostolic exhortation, The Sacrament of Charity, inspired Living the Eucharist. Our Holy Father calls Catholics to renew our experience of the Sacrament of the Eucharist as a mystery to be believed, a mystery to be celebrated, and a mystery to be lived.
This Lenten program renews and heightens parishioner involvement in the Sunday Eucharist, helps parishioners connect the celebration of the Eucharist more closely with the mission of Jesus Christ and the Church, and inspires them to live more intentionally as disciples of Jesus during the week.
Multi-media program materials reach out to parishioners in the medium that speaks most meaningfully to them. All Living the Eucharist materials are available in English and Spanish and incorporate the changes of the Third Edition of The Roman Missal, which was implemented in parishes in Advent 2011.
