Our Work

Like our Founder, St Peter Julian Eymard, the religious of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation see the Eucharist ‘as a powerful force of renewal for Church and society’ (Rule #33).

Our mission is to do all that we can to enable the Eucharist to transform the world. This opens the way for a wide range of ministries. In the first place we aim to celebrate the Eucharist faithfully in the parishes entrusted to our care, in city-centre shrines or in places of prayer and retreat.

We promote the practice of eucharistic adoration, our prayer of communion with the Lord.

We study, teach and preach what it means to live the Eucharist; we do whatever we can to foster the justice, peace and unity that the Eucharist embodies.

We invite the lay faithful to share our eucharistic spirituality and we especially put ourselves at the service of priests.
