Eucharistic Revival

St. Robert Parish is participating in the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) call to have a movement of “Eucharistic Revival” across the nation. We are joining countless bishops, dioceses, parishes, and apostolates to be healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist — and sent out in mission “for the life of the world.”

Parish Mission to Kick Off Lent!

All are warmly welcome to join us for a parish mission February 16 – 18, entitled “The Eucharist: Come Find What You Seek.” This three-day event will involve speakers, prayer opportunities, family friendly and young adult presentations, food, and fellowship. We are blessed to have speakers from the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation in Nashville, TN, as well as Fr. John LoCoco of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. The mission of the Revival is “to renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.” We hope that you will join us for our mission weekend. Come, find what you seek!

PRESENTATION DESCRIPTIONS

The Transforming Power of the Eucharist (Friday at 7:30 PM)

In Matthew 5:48, Jesus says, “Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect.” How does Christ make possible what seems impossible? Through His real presence in the Eucharist, Christ transform us. He wants to make us like Him and make our lives Eucharistic so we can be perfect and reflect His love to all we meet.

– Sr. Maria Caeli

Praying as a Family: a workshop for parents and children of all ages (Saturday at 1:30 PM)

Prayer nurtures the life of the family. It opens hearts, melts away resentments, fosters gratitude, and becomes a fount of grace, peace, and joy for the entire family. This talk will be an aid for families who desire to grow in their lives of prayer and directs families step-by-step in beginning to pray together.

– Sr. Maria Caeli

Deepening the Divine Dialogue: Praying the Sacrifice of the Mass (Saturday at 4:00 PM)

As Woody Allen once said, “90% of life is just showing up!” But taken as advice for our spiritual lives, this is probably the worst advice possible. How often as Catholics do we find ourselves just going through the motions, checking the boxes, “Mass? Check. Confession? Check.” Wasn’t I made for something more? In fact, yes, you were! Come discover the transformative power of praying and participating in the sacrifice of the Mass by understanding what it means to worship and not merely pray, what it means to make an act of thanksgiving, and what it means to pray as a member of one, holy, Catholic, and apostolic Church.

– Fr. John LoCoco

 

Jesus in the Eucharist Study

St. Robert Parish participated in the National Eucharistic Revival in the fall of 2023 by hosting Jesus and the Eucharist, a dynamic, 7-session study designed to help you connect with your fellow parishioners as you fall deeper in love with our Eucharistic Lord. Immerse yourself in the beauty of our faith, hear from some of the most brilliant voices in Catholicism, and explore the mystery of the Eucharist anew as a part of the National Eucharistic Revival.

This series features an impressive array of Catholic voices! Each session opens with an exhortation from a different bishop, includes teaching from prominent theologians and influential figures in the Church today, and highlights personal testimonies from everyday Catholics who have experienced the transformative power of Eucharistic love in their own lives.

Click here to access this study on FORMED. This video series, participant discussion handouts, and many, many other resources on the Eucharist are available at the National Eucharistic Revival website.

Encounter Jesus – Overnight Adoration at St. Robert

In conjunction with the National Eucharistic Revival, St. Robert Parish is offering monthly overnight adoration on Second Saturdays. Adoration will begin following 4:30pm Mass and will end before 8:30am Mass.

We need your help in this effort! We are looking for at least two adorers in each slot (ideally three) – please sign up here and spread the word. You can also submit prayer intentions to be shared with adorers here.

We hope you’ll join us in praying for the needs of our parish, our community, and our world by signing up to spend time with the Lord.
