We are joining forces

What if every parishioner who sat next to you in the pew on Sunday had an ardent devotion to the Eucharist? 

What if you could create a plan that makes space for each of those parishioners to experience Christ’s mercy & love in the True Presence?

Join hundreds of your fellow FOCUS missionary alumni, the USCCB & the FOCUS Alumni Team to intentionally take up the call during the National Eucharistic Revival's parish year to bring Christ’s presence to your parish and our country. If you are not a former FOCUS staff please see FAQ's below.

**The registration deadline has passed and we will let you know within 2 weeks if we are able to accept your registration.  Challenge prices increase with SEEK24 price increases: Oct 30, Dec 1

Are you ready to revive your parish's love for the Eucharist and join us for SEEK24?!

If you answered with an enthusiastic YES! then sign up below!  Deadline to register is October 13th!

This collaboration ends September 29th at midnight

What will it take?

 Every renewal, every revival within the Church will take substantial effort and likely meet significant resistance.  

Whether you have a thriving parish that loves the Eucharist or you have a parish that is lacking, here's the truth...  

Now more than ever, your parish needs you, and YOUR love for the Eucharist. If you have been waiting for the perfect time to launch, now is that time.  

But, like other FOCUS Alumni, you might be asking questions like these: "How do I even start? Who can do this with me?"

If that’s the case, the Eucharistic Revival Challenge is the challenge you need. It will give you all the resources you need to pray, plan and execute revival in your parish. The American Church, the entire Alumni team and the missionary alumni family are all here to support you in this mission.  

Are you ready to see Eucharistic revival in your parish?

What exactly do you need to do in the Eucharistic Revival Challenge?

Sign up to be a parish leader through the USCCB

You will sign up as an official parish point person through the National Eucharistic Revival website. We'll walk you through the process once you register for the Challenge.

Write and submit parish plan

After attending a live workshop (1 of 4 required), you will use a PDF guide to create your plan. It will consist of four goals you deem appropriate for the current state of your parish. You will submit it via a link so the Alumni team can pray for your goals every Monday.

Attend 4 live workshops with other FOCUS missionary alumni

You will attend four live workshops to clarify, brainstorm, collaborate and pray with other FOCUS missionary alumni. 

Complete the goals in your plan by June 2024

You will have from now until June to complete the goals you have created in your plan. You will submit the fruits you've seen and gather for a final live webinar (1 of 4 required) of prayer & thanksgiving to complete the challenge!

  1. You want to see a renewed life in your parish.

Frequently Asked Questions

You & your spouse (if you're married) each can register for $25. Your children that are high school age or younger receive free registrations.
Sorry this deal only applies to FOCUS missionary alumni and their children.  Significant others who are not married to a missionary alum do not qualify. Any children older than high school age will need to register separately as a general attendee and do not qualify for the $25 registration.

Everyone who signs up will qualify for free childcare. HOWEVER, there is a 200 child limit for the conference. Therefore it's first-come, first-served.
The sooner you register for the challenge and turn in your parish plan, the sooner you can register for SEEK and secure your childcare. Childcare is offered only to children between the ages of 18 months and 10 years old. Childcare times include 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Days 2-4 (Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday) of conference, subject to change.

If you sign up for this challenge with us, you will be required to submit a parish plan. However, we realize every parish situation is different. If there's already a committee in place, or other missionary alumni at your parish participating in the Challenge, it may mean you collaborate with them and submit a plan based on what you specifically are doing as part of that team. Or you could choose a unique angle for your plan that the committee/other alumni isn't covering. Be creative in the ways you collaborate! If you have a special situation, feel free to email tyler.degen@focus.org to inquire about what you can do.

No they don't, but we don't want you to do this alone. We would love for you to find someone at your parish you can run with. In fact, inviting another to join you will be part of completing your parish plan, and that could but doesn't have to be your spouse. They can be as involved in the parish plan as he/she is able.

The deadline to register for the challenge has been extended until October 13th at 11:59 p.m.
The deadline for signing up for SEEK24 for $25 (after submitting your parish plan) will be October 27 at 11:59 p.m.

The National Eucharistic Revival "Parish Year" officially runs June 2023 - June 2024.  Your plan will span over this time period, but it doesn't need to end in June 2024.  We will officially gather to close the challenge in late May/early June 2024, but your plan can obviously continue.  You are also invited to join FOCUS at the National Eucharistic Congress, July 17-21, 2024, which launches the "Year of Mission". You can register with our 20% off group discount, "FOCUS", via this link: https://www.eucharisticcongress.org/focus 

You will receive an email with six steps for you to follow immediately which will take about 20 minutes. We will guide you via email and live webinars on what to do once those steps are completed.     

We will guide you through the parish plan process but the major resource you will be using to develop your plan is the National Eucharistic Revival Leader's Playbook. You can find that resource here: https://www.eucharisticrevival.org/parishpointperson

Please email Amber (amber.ezeani@focus.org) and she will help you find an answer. 

While the SEEK24 for $25 incentive is only for former FOCUS staff, we do invite anyone else to join us in the Eucharistic Revival Challenge.  If you are not a FOCUS staff alum, but would still like to join the challenge and receive a SEEK discount incentive, please email Tyler Degen: tyler.degen@focus.org.
