2024 Diocese-wide Eucharistic Convocation



We are in the midst of Eucharistic Revival!


Last May, the Pastors of our parishes along with their Parish Eucharistic Revival Teams attended the Diocesan Eucharistic Congress in Pueblo.  Over the course of three days of prayer, liturgy, presentations, and discussion they came to conclusions about how the Holy Spirit was guiding them to engage in Eucharistic Revival in their parishes.  As we heard at the Deanery Eucharistic Gatherings this past Fall, and as you hopefully experienced in your parish, many parishes are experiencing fruit from the Revival.  Let us continue this process of Revival by responding to Bishop Berg’s invitation to be a part of the 2024 Diocese-wide Eucharistic Convocation to be held in Grand Junction this coming June!


At the upcoming Convocation, we will dive even more deeply into the gift of the Eucharist.  The theme of the Convocation is “Enter the Mystery, Go Forth with a Mission.”  The presentations and discussions of the Convocation will call to mind and help us to enter more fully into the great mystery of the Eucharist, whose depths can never be exhausted.  In prayer and celebration of the liturgy, we will become open to hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit calling each of us and our parishes to deeper devotion, discipleship, and mission.  In fellowship, we will be inspired by one another as well as by the national speakers, who will give us profound points for meditation.  In the midst of all of this, we will be praying for the Holy Spirit to guide our next steps into the Eucharistic Revival Year of Mission, where we are to take the Good News of Jesus in the Eucharist to our friends, family, and those in our communities.  We have such a treasure in the Eucharist, let us follow the Holy Spirit’s guidance in how we are to share that treasure with those we love.


This year, the Convocation will be held primarily at the Grand Junction Convention Center, allowing more people to attend.  Pastors will still bring their Parish Eucharistic Revival Teams, but anyone interested in three days focused on Jesus in the Eucharist in prayer and liturgy is invited to join us.  The talks by our speakers will be held at the same time in English and Spanish in different rooms so that those who speak each language can get the most benefit from the talks.  Reserve your spot now!  And I look forward to seeing you there.
