NEW BEDFORD — This Lent, there will be a series of Eucharistic Nights in the Diocese of Fall River to coincide with the National Eucharistic Revival.
During these nights, the relics of Blessed Carlo Acutis and St. Manuel Garcia, accompanied by National Eucharistic Preacher Father Roger Landry, will tour the diocese. Each night will include Eucharistic Adoration, Confession, the opportunity to venerate the relics, and a talk given by Father Landry.
“It’s such a great blessing that we will have the relics of St. Manuel Gonzalez Garcia and Blessed Carlo Acutis with us in the diocese,” Father Landry told The Anchor. “They are both tremendous witnesses to the life-changing reality of Jesus in the Eucharist with powerful and timely messages for us all. I’m looking forward to having a chance to stoke love for them as I accompany their relics throughout the diocese.”
Additionally, a Eucharistic Miracles Exhibit will be present for viewing.
Catholics throughout the diocese are invited and encouraged to attend to unite in prayer during that week, asking the Eucharistic Lord to renew our diocese.
The following is a schedule of the nights, which are free and open to the public:
