Young people are taking part in the Nationwide Eucharistic Revival.
A Mass at St. Peter and Paul Church in Williamsburg brought the youth of Brooklyn and Queens together in an effort to draw closer to Christ through the Eucharist.
It’s part of a nationwide campaign started by U.S. bishops, after they discovered a majority of Catholics did not know a core tenet of the faith: that the bread and wine at Mass become Christ’s body and blood, and they’re not just symbols.
Following the Mass, the youth processed through the streets with the Eucharist ending at Our Lady of Mount Carmel. They were able to venerate relics of the first possible millennial saint who helped others discover the Eucharist, Blessed Carlo Acutis.
There will also be a diocese-wide celebration for the revival.
The October 7th event at Maimonides Park will include family Catechesis, a Eucharistic procession and a Mass. If you would like to attend the event, you can register Dioceseofbrooklyn.org/eucharistic-revival-2023/.
