Only 30% of Catholics believe that the Eucharist is the Real Presence of Jesus.
This, combined with the strain put on Mass attendance during the COVID pandemic have led Church leaders to develop inspiration and understanding on the need to refocus and rediscover the importance of Eucharistic worship as the Bread of Life. In 2021, the U.S. bishops announced a Eucharistic Revival initiative – three years of prayer, pilgrimage and worship beginning June of 2022 and lasting through July of 2024 with a special Eucharistic conference to be held in Indianapolis July 17-21, 2024.
