Material Overview

 Living the Eucharist is a Lenten small group program which allows members of the parish to explore the Eucharist and Mass in order to enter into a deeper love of Christ.


About the Program

Living the Eucharist is a dynamic, parish-based program designed to help revitalize parish life and spirituality through a more profound experience of Sunday Mass. Based on Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s “The Sacrament of Charity,” it helps the entire parish—adults, teens, and families—grow in their Catholic faith and live more fully as disciples of Jesus.


Living the Eucharist runs during Lent for three years. Parishioners can take part in adult and teen faith-sharing groups, family activities, devotional and catechetical Lenten readings, and a prayer campaign.


The multi-media program materials are comprehensive, proven, and easy to use. Ongoing support keeps your parish on the right track throughout the program.
