Wow One of the Largest Eucharistic Pilgrimages in History Across the USA has Begun and is Igniting the Faith in America!

Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament is being carried through 27 states and 65 dioceses, through a total distance of 6,500 miles on foot, as part of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage that has started in the United States.
The routes of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage, named for saintly significance corresponding to the geographical starting point, will pass through many major U.S. cities beginning in San Francisco, CA (Serra Route); Bemidji, MN (Marian Route); New Haven, CT (Seton Route); and Brownsville, TX (Juan Diego Route). Each journey will be rooted in daily celebration of the Mass with a general schedule consisting of major solemn procession on Sundays, with Mass and smaller processions at parishes during the week.

Pilgrims will travel 10-15 miles each day while taking part in a minor Eucharistic procession.
 In addition to Mass, parishes will host Adoration, 40 Hours devotions, praise and worship services, lectures on the Eucharist, pilgrim testimonies, meals, and fellowship. Biblical hospitality will be offered via host families, parishes, religious orders, schools, shrines, retreat centers, and everything in between.In keeping with this vision, the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage will accompany Jesus from city to city, lighting hearts on fire along the way. Then, at the National Eucharistic Congress in July 2024, all these flames will blaze together.
A Journey TO Jesus

A pilgrimage is “the simultaneous movement of the feet and the soul”—a journey made both externally and internally. The pilgrim travels to a location of spiritual significance, stepping outside of themselves in order to encounter God in places where he has revealed himself. This action mirrors the interior journey of the pilgrim, who uses this experience to draw closer to Our Lord and seek him more intentionally.

The value of a pilgrimage is not in the distance traveled but in the disposition of our own hearts and the zeal with which we seek God. Many saints have had life-changing experiences while on pilgrimage, and the practice has been a part of Christianity from the beginning.
A Journey WITH Jesus
Jesus doesn’t want us to walk alone. At the Incarnation, Christ entered directly into our human experience, allowing him to accompany us through life in a more intimate way. But physically walking with Jesus is not a privilege restricted to Christians from the first century!
When Jesus gave us the gift of the Eucharist, he gave us a new way to walk alongside him. Catholicism now has a vibrant history of Eucharistic processions! In this tradition, the Eucharist is carried through the streets, accompanied by the faithful. We walk publicly with Our Lord so that others may encounter him personally, just as they did 2,000 years ago.
What Is a Eucharistic Pilgrimage?
The National Eucharistic Pilgrimage is a truly unique initiative. This is something NEW—a beautiful fusion of the journey TO Jesus and the journey WITH Jesus. What’s more, it is an adventure that all Catholics can do together, either by interior disposition or physical accompaniment.

This is the birth of something remarkable. Join us as we accompany Jesus in the Eucharist from the north, south, east, and west edges of our country, stopping at many holy sites and churches along the way. Together we will journey with Christ on his way to the 10th National Eucharistic Congress, where he comes to encounter his people anew.
The Pilgrimage will be a powerful, once-in-a-lifetime witness of how Jesus Christ comes close to us and invites all to encounter him in the Eucharist.
The National Eucharistic Congress writes:
In an age marked by division and doubt, we need Jesus more than ever. We need him to heal us, convert us, form us, and unify us in his Real Presence. And nowhere are we closer to Jesus than in the gift of the Eucharist.
The Holy Spirit is inviting the Church in the United States into a season of profound renewal. In response to this invitation, the U.S. bishops have called for a three-year movement: the National Eucharistic Revival.
Revival is not something we do. It is a sovereign act of God. If we respond to his invitation with open hearts, he promises to do the rest.
Our whole-hearted, grassroots response to this invitation is what makes up the Revival movement. Already, historic initiatives are flowing from our national effort to cooperate with God’s grace!
This summer, Jesus is on the move, in real and powerful ways, and you are invited to journey with him!
From May 17 to July 17, four small groups of young adults will make an epic journey as part of the first-ever National Eucharistic Pilgrimage—one of the largest Eucharistic processions in history. They will journey with Jesus in the Eucharist across our whole country, blessing over 6,000 miles of our nation in the shape of a cross.
Thousands will have a powerful opportunity for encounter and healing as Jesus comes to meet them on his way to the 10th National Eucharistic Congress. Explore the four pilgrimage routes and learn more about how you can participate at Come and meet Jesus on the road!
Then, from July 17-21, Catholics from all across our nation will gather around the altar for the 10th National Eucharistic Congress—the first such gathering in nearly a century. More than just a retreat or conference, the National Eucharistic Congress will be a pivotal moment in both American history and the legacy of the Catholic Church.
Together, we will be healed, converted, unified, and launched into a new chapter of Eucharistic mission. Whether you join us for one day or all five, the grace you receive will spill out into your community when you return home—deeply in love with the Eucharist and excited about the future of the Church in America.
