Year of the Eucharist

In his Pastoral Letter “The Work of Redemption: Eucharistic Belief and Practice in the Archdiocese of Seattle”, Archbishop Paul D. Etienne invites everyone to celebrate a Year of the Eucharist. Through this year of prayer and study, we are encouraged to foster and strengthen our celebration of the incredible gift of the Eucharist.

Over the next year, we’ll explore different dimensions of the Eucharist, echoing the shape of the Mass:

Gathering — What makes us community? (It’s the Eucharist, of course!)

Word —  How the Scriptures can come to life in our lives

Presence — The Real Christ in the Eucharist, the center of Church and of our lives

Sending — Our mission to carry on the work of Jesus— serving the poor and vulnerable, proclaiming the Gospel, and sanctifying the world

We encourage you to join in the celebration of the Year of the Eucharist.

Read Archbishop’s pastoral letter. Listen to what the Scriptures are saying to us. Spend time with the Blessed Sacrament.
