Parish catechists, youth ministers, RCIA coordinators and other leaders are invited to attend an upcoming Formation Day to study, "The Mystery of the Eucharist in the Life of the Church," the 2021 document released by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) outlining the goals of the National Eucharistic Revival going on now through 2025. 

Formation Days will be held in five parishes across the Diocese of Little Rock from November to May in English and Spanish. Participants may register online or by mail at one of the following locations:

  • May 13 — St. Vincent de Paul Church, Rogers. Deadline to register is May 1.

This event is sponsored by the Office of Faith Formation. Jeff Hines, director, organized these events, to "gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of Christ’s gift of himself in the Eucharist, and our response to his gift." Each Formation Day will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and include presentations from priests and catechists, small group discussion, lunch and Mass. The cost is $10 per person.
