The faithful of Brooklyn and Queens are invited to play their part at the Diocese of Brooklyn Eucharistic Revival.

Pilgrims, united in their belief in the presence of Christ in the Eucharist, will converge from every corner of the diocese. They will journey together, on the subway and on the streets, to the Louis Armstrong Stadium in Flushing Meadows Park on Saturday, Apr. 20, for an unprecedented event.

With hearts brimming with anticipation, parishioners and faith leaders have been eagerly awaiting this momentous day. 

“It is really all about the joy of the risen Christ,” said Father Joseph Gibino, Vicar for Evangelization and Catechesis for the diocese. “We should be proclaiming to the world that we are a people blessed and graced.”

Father Gibino said the sights and sounds of praise will stimulate pilgrims’ senses upon arrival.

“As they get to the park, it’s going to be utter chaos as they arrive; it will truly be Pentecost,” Father Gibino said. “Then they’re going to come into the stadium, and it will be bright and bold; it will be Easter.”
