"My wish is for this event to be free just as the Eucharist is free, the encounter with the Eucharist will be free." — Father Juan Guido, Eucharistic Revival Committee chairman
The Diocese of Little Rock will end its celebration of the Year of Diocesan Revival with two Eucharistic Revival Days in June. This concludes the first year of the National Eucharistic Revival, which continues through 2025. This first year invited diocesan staff, bishops and priests to respond to the Lord’s personal invitation and equip them to share this love with the faithful through diocesan eucharistic congresses and other events. | See DOLR Events.

One will be held at St. Raphael Church in Springdale on Saturday, June 3 and the second will be held at Christ the King Church in Little Rock on Saturday, June 10.

He will speak on having a personal relationship with Jesus in the Eucharist.
After the lunch break, Francis will deliver another presentation. His morning and afternoon talks will be translated into Spanish and delivered in another room. Breakout sessions in English and Spanish will be held in the morning with local priests and deacons and repeated in the afternoon.
The day will close with adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 3 p.m. and Mass with Bishop Taylor at 4 p.m., which will include the blessing of catechists and commission of extraordinary ministers of holy Communion. Beau Baldwin, music director and organist at the Cathedral of St. Andrew in Little Rock, will lead a diocesan choir with music in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.
