National Eucharistic Revival
The Bishops of the United States are calling for a three-year grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. We are seeking to renew the whole Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, at all levels of worship. The Revival kicks off on June 19, 2022 - the Feast of Corpus Christi.Learn More
Synod on Synodality - Summary Report
Pope Francis invited the faithful to share their ideas and experiences on how we can better live out the mission of Jesus Christ and His Church through the Synod on Synodality survey last year. Everyone was invited to participate, regardless of their relationship with the Church, with the goal of listening to both the Holy Spirit and to one another in order to understand how we can better engage and teach about Christ. All of the survey responses from around the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown were accumulated into a public document outlining what we have heard and how we can act going forward, which you can read in full by clicking below.
