The first year of the National Eucharistic Revival closed in the Diocese of Little Rock with two Eucharistic Revival Days.

On June 3, national speaker Tim Francis spoke to more than 450 people at St. Raphael Church in Springdale about eucharistic miracles and their meaning. On June 10, Cathedral of St. Andrew rector Father Joseph de Orbegozo addressed about 425 people at Christ the King Church in Little Rock.

The days also included breakout sessions, adoration, Mass with Bishop Anthony B. Taylor, blessing of catechists and commissioning extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist.
