Deadline to Submit Parish History, Adoration Times & Holy Hours
For the Parish Year of the National Eucharistic Revival, we request that every parish send a History of the Parish, Adoration times, and planned Holy Hours.
2023-24 is the Parish Year of the National Eucharistic Revival.
We are requesting that every parish email Very Rev. John-Michael Lavelle their regularly scheduled times for Adoration in the parish, and to also email dates for any planned Holy Hours during this Parish Year of the Revival. These times will then be posted on the Eucharistic Revival page of the diocesan website.
Additionally, we are in the process of creating a “sequel” to the 1951 “March of the Eucharist”. We are asking every parish to provide an updated “History of the Parish”. The history should be no more than one typed page (once photos and artwork are added, this will create a two-page spread for each parish). Specific information could include the founding pastor, if the parish was served by a religious community, the presence of a school, and the various charisms of the parish, along with a few highlights of the parish community over time. We are not looking for detailed lists of pastors or staff, but a general reflection on the life of the parish. For newly formed parishes, the inclusion of all the previous information listed could be provided for each original community, leading to the formation of the new entity. Please email this information to Very Rev. John-Michael Lavelle by September 15, 2023.
