Eucharistic Revival

We thank you for all your work and effort to bring a renewed love for the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. We are hearing many powerful testimonies of the ways people are having a profound encounter through all of your work! If you have events happening at your parish that you would like to share, please send the information to [email protected]. You can visit our website for more details on upcoming events, resources, and an opportunity for people to share their testimony.

If you are thinking of hosting a Eucharistic encounter during Lent and/or any other time in the liturgical calendar, consider hosting a Night of Mercy or something similar. Attached are documents, in English and Spanish, with details on how to plan and run it. Please reach out to us at [email protected] if you would like any support.

Development Office | Cardinal’s Annual Stewardship Appeal 2023 Timeline

As we embark on the 2023 Appeal, Cardinal Dolan has selected the theme, “Blessed Are All Who Take Refuge in Him,” which is inspired by the National Eucharistic Revival and its mission to guide Catholics to a renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist. We hope this theme will encourage parishioners to live out and practice our faith as members of one family and to further the mission of the Church in New York through their support of its good works.

Your campaign manager looks forward to meeting with you to discuss the 2023 Appeal plan and timeline. As they work to schedule initial meetings this month, we would like you to note the following important dates within the Appeal timeline:

  • January 9:         General Appeal Mailed
  • January 13:       Pastor Follow-Up Letter #1 Due
  • January 21-22:  Parish-Wide Announcement Weekend
  • February 16:     Pastor Follow-Up Letter #1 Mailed
  • February 23:     Manhattan Regional Event – St. Agnes Parish
