October 2022 - Archdiocese of Milwaukee Eucharistic Revival Preparation Day

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee hosted a Eucharistic Revival Preparation Day on October 22, 2022.  It was a day to focus on the vision and mission of the Eucharistic Revival including various workshops on how parishes can prepare for the Revival at their parish.

Kristin Bird from Burning Hearts Disciples presented one of the workshop sessions: From Encounter to Invitation.  

Missionary discipleship begins in the encounter each person has with our Lord, Jesus Christ.   The Lord himself chose to encounter us - to draw us into closer relationship with Him - in the bread and wine that are consecrated at each Mass.  Encountering Jesus in the Eucharist changes us, strengthens us, heals us - and that encounter can begin from the moment people walk through our Church doors (or even before!)  When we truly recognize and believe that we encounter Love himself each time we approach the Eucharistic table, we are more intentional and deliberate about how we invite others in our parish to encounter the Body of Christ.

If you would like to talk to someone about how to plan for the Eucharistic Revival, host a parish mission, or offer a formation event for evangelizing through the Eucharist at your parish, please don't hesitate to contact us
