National Eucharistic Pilgrimage Mass, Adoration, and Procession

On Wednesday, June 26 the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Archdiocese of Chicago held a celebration of Mass at the University of Saint Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary along with Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and a Eucharistic Procession around the campus.

Over 1,200 people gathered to participate in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception and in the Procession on our campus.

The National Eucharistic Revival is a three-year, grassroots initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to assist Catholics in coming to a fuller understanding and appreciation of the meaning of the Eucharist in the life of the Church. The aim is to proclaim that the celebration of the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life, to assist Catholics to encounter the Risen Lord in the Eucharist, and to deepen their discipleship in sharing His work of redeeming the world, won on the cross.

The Revival will culminate in a pilgrimage across the country to Indianapolis for the Eucharistic Congress in July 2024. The Archdiocese of Chicago, on the Marian Route of the pilgrimage, will host pilgrims and has organized special events and Eucharistic celebrations in archdiocesan parishes and locations from June 26 to 30, 2024.

Throughout the National Eucharistic Revival, local communities are gathering tinder in response to God’s invitation for renewal, calling on the Holy Spirit to bring the flame.

In keeping with this vision, the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage will accompany Jesus from city to city, lighting hearts on fire along the way. Then, at the National Eucharistic Congress in July 2024, all these flames will blaze together.

Departing from the headwaters of the Mississippi, the northern arm of the Pilgrimage will descend through the midwestern United States, pass through Wisconsin and Illinois, stopping at the University of Saint Mary of the Lake on June 26, and meet up with the other three Pilgrimage routes in Indianapolis at the 10th National Eucharistic Congress.
