On Becoming the Body of Christ. Why do we Celebrate the Eucharist?

April 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The Eucharist as Source and Summit of our Christian Life

 “The Eucharist is God’s response to the deepest hunger of the human heart, the hunger for authentic life, for, in the Eucharist, Christ Himself is truly in our midst, to nourish, console and sustain us on our journey.” Pope Francis

On June 19, 2022, the Catholic Church in the United States embarked on a three-year journey to encourage a deeper understanding of the mystery of the Eucharist. We just finished the Year of Diocesan Eucharistic Revival which saw many initiatives in the different dioceses throughout the country. Currently we are in the Year of Parish Revival which will culminate with a Eucharistic Congress to be held in Indianapolis from July 17-24. Next, we will engage in a Year of Going out on Mission through Pentecost 2025.

At the Basilica, we are inviting you to participate in several initiatives, including a series of lectures on different aspects of the Eucharist.  Please join us on:

  • Sunday, April 21 at 1:00pm in the Teresa of Calcutta Hall, lower level: On Becoming the Body of Christ. Why do we Celebrate the Eucharist? by Dr. Johan van Parys, Managing Director of Ministries/Director of Liturgy & Sacred Arts at The Basilica of Saint Mary
