Eucharistic Pilgrimage

Flocknotes from the Pilgrimage

Day One

Fr. JC, Genevieve and Dan are praying for Little Flower, bringing you and your prayers to
the Eucharistic Pilgrimage.
We had a really powerful evening last night with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, speakers and praise and worship music and the Body of Christ gathered of more than 40,000! 

Join (Virtually) with Fr. JC on the First Ever National Eucharistic Pilgrimage!

Why is this important?

  • “The procession with the Blessed Sacrament…reminds us that we are called to go out and bring Jesus to others. To go out with enthusiasm, bringing Christ to those we meet in our daily lives.” Pope Francis, Homily on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, 6 June 2021 ​

  • We are invited to not just be recipients of our faith, but missionary disciples, who witness to our faith through our words and deeds.  

  • This is a unique and historic opportunity that is part of a three year journey of Eucharistic Revival called for by our US Bishops.  

  • Extending ourselves in service to the Lord leads to growth and joy.


On July 16, 2024, all four branches of this historic Pilgrimage will converge in Indianapolis for the 10th National Eucharistic Congress—a milestone within the Revival and a historic moment for the Church in the U.S.

The reinstitution of this legacy will gather our Catholic family in Indianapolis for a transformative experience that will bear fruit for generations to come. 
Fr. JC along with Dan Grossano, our Pastoral Associate, will be a part of the 10th National Eucharistic Congress. Follow them by joining the Flocknote mailing list


The celebration of the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith because through this gift we encounter Jesus Christ himself. During the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Christ’s Passion, Death, and Resurrection are made present before our very eyes—albeit in a veiled way. This sacrifice is the source of our hope, the summit of salvation history, and the steady axis around which the world turns. 

When Father JC Merino first arrived at the Church of the Little Flower in Berkeley Heights, he sought the Lord’s guidance on his role as pastor. In prayer, the Lord spoke to him, saying, “Take everyone I will send you into a pilgrimage — a spiritual pilgrimage.”
