CV NEWS FEED // A national Catholic institute is set to host a Eucharistic procession in New York City this October, fostering greater devotion to the Eucharist amidst the USCCB’s three-year-long National Eucharistic Revival.
Founded in 2011, the Napa Institute has hosted an annual Eucharistic procession in Manhattan for several years. This year’s event, scheduled for October 15, also includes a Holy Hour and Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral before the procession.
Archbishop Paul Coakley of Oklahoma City will celebrate the Mass and Msgr. James Shea, president of the University of Mary in Bismarck, will give the homily. In addition, Bishop Joseph Espaillat, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of New York, will give a talk during the Holy Hour.
Registration for the 2024 New York City Eucharistic Procession is free and open to all.
In addition to coordinating the annual Eucharistic procession in New York, the Napa Institute also hosts several conferences, events, and pilgrimages worldwide every year.
According to its website, members of the Institute “believe that now is the time to advance the re-evangelization of the United States.” Each event is put on with that in mind.
“[W]e have brought people together to deepen their faith by growing an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and their fellow Christians,” the website states. “With open seating at meals and other opportunities to socialize, our events allow time for fellowship and friendship that is unrivaled among Catholic conferences.”
Each event keeps the Eucharist at its heart, inspiring deep conversations, conversions, faith, and friendships through a greater devotion to the Eucharist.
