Responding to Calls for Eucharistic Revival, WCC Launches New Podcast, “The Eucharist with Wyoming Catholic College”
I encourage you to continue your efforts to contribute to a revival of faith in, and love for, the Holy Eucharist, the “source and summit of the Christian life”—Pope Francis
Inspired by recent conversations about the National Eucharistic Revival and the importance of returning the Eucharist to the center of our Catholic faith and practices, Wyoming Catholic College’s president, Professor Kyle Washut, and her Academic Dean, Dr. Jeremy Holmes, have launched a new podcast: “The Eucharist with Wyoming Catholic College.”
“There are so many excellent conversations taking place right now about the Eucharist and its central role in the lives of all Catholics,” said President Washut. “And I believe that the perspective Wyoming Catholic can bring to that conversation is a helpful one. In addition to the rich liturgical sense of the Eucharist that our students develop through experiencing both the Roman and Byzantine rites,” continued Washut, “there’s a wonderful sense of ‘Eucharist as wilderness meal’ that I think is an often-overlooked part of our understanding. And life at WCC is perfect for reminding us of that!”
Like the College’s beloved “After Dinner Scholar” podcast, this one can be heard weekly, with new episodes released on Thursdays. In addition to President Washut and Dean Holmes, guests will include professors and students from the College, as well as friends and supporters with particularly helpful insights into the Eucharist and its role in Catholic life.
The National Eucharistic Revival, a three-year initiative from the Bishops of the United States, hopes to inspire Catholics to be “formed, healed, converted, united, and sent out to a hurting and hungry world through a renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist, the source and summit of our Catholic faith.” This eucharistic movement “seeks to bring together clergy, religious, laity, apostolates, movements, and parish and diocesan leaders to spur momentum, collaboration, and lasting impact for the renewal of the Catholic Church in the U.S.” Officially launched in June 2022, its milestone event will be a Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis, IN, from July 17-21, 2024.
