Year of the Eucharist 

The Year of the Eucharist

As often as the sacrifice of the cross in which Christ our Passover was sacrificed, is celebrate on the altar, the work of our redemption is carried on, and, in the sacrament of the eucharistic bread, the unity of all believers who form one body in Christ is both expressed and brought about.  All are called to this union with Christ, who is the light of the world, from whom we go forth, through whom we live, toward whom our life strains.

The Year of the Eucharist in the Archdiocese of Baltimore was introduced by Archbishop William Lori to help us connect with the Lord and experience his never-ending light in deeper ways. We invite you to join us this year to make that space that may have developed between you and the Lord during our time away from church during the pandemic, much smaller, to enliven your relationship with him, especially through the Eucharist. For a full schedule, please visit our Schedule & Directions page.
