Holy Hour for National Eucharistic Revival

Auxiliary Bishop Robert Lombardo led a Holy Hour for the National Eucharistic Revival at St. Mary of the Angels Church, 1850 N. Hermitage Ave., on March 7, 2023. Holy hours for the revival were scheduled for each of the Archdiocese of Chicago's six vicariates between March 5 and 22. The March 7 service was for Vicariate III. The National Eucharistic Revival began on the solemnity of Corpus Christi June 19, 2022. The revival is a three-year initiative sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to form, heal, convert and unite the People of God through a renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist.
