Celebrating the Year of the Eucharist

From Holy Thursday 2020 through the Feast of Corpus Christi 2021, the Archdiocese of Boston will be celebrating a special Year of the Eucharist.  Its focus is to give the faithful a deeper understanding of this sacrament and a greater devotion to it.  Cardinal O'Malley has called for this special year in response to national polls that indicate that many Catholics do not understand the true nature of the sacrament or its great importance. 

You can read the Cardinal's letter to gain an understanding of his goals and motivations.

St. Cecilia's Parish is currently planning our own activities for the Year of the Eucharist.  The Archdiocese will also soon provide more information.  This page will be your source for information on this.  Meanwhile, please plan on attending our Holy Thursday Mass which includes a foot washing ceremony, in which twelve parishioners participate, and ends with adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
