Let Us Adore Jesus

The National Eucharistic Revival is a three-year initiative of the bishops of the United States to renew our devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.  During the Holy Hour, we will encounter Jesus, who seeks to heal, convert, form, and unify us, and send us forth to Courageously Live the Gospel.  Let us adore Jesus who remains with us always and lead others to share in our joy.  To learn more visit:
