The Diocese of Trenton is devoting an entire weekend to the launch of the Eucharistic Revival. And it’s the goal that both days will provide occasions for families to come together for some fun and to celebrate their Catholic faith.

On June 19, which is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ and the actual start date of the Eucharistic Revival, Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., will join the community of Corpus Christi Parish, Willingboro, for the celebration of the 11 a.m. Mass, followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament with a Eucharistic procession. All parishes in the Diocese will commemorate the feast and the launch of the Revival.

The day before on June 18, Turkey Swamp Park in Freehold will serve as the site for a Mass and picnic to  be held for families from throughout the Diocese. The 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. event will begin with Mass celebrated by Bishop O’Connell, followed by a picnic lunch with fun activities including soccer, volleyball, a puppet show and face painting. The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed and attendees will have time to participate in Adoration. The day will conclude with Benediction.

Turkey Swamp Park, Sandy Run Area, is located at 200 Georgia, Rd., Freehold. For more information and to RSVP, visit
