The UNITE OUR NATION “Rally to the Eucharist” project, of which the UNITE MICHIGAN is a part of, is a grassroots inspired movement. The UNITE OUR NATION processions have ignited the laity across the nation. The massive Eucharistic processional events have become a rallying point for faithful Catholics everywhere. They offer an opportunity for Catholics to come together in Christian solidarity to pray, adore and to do public reparation for the deep divisions that have cut across our nation. Divisions seeded by unrepentant sin and a general weakening of the faith among our people. We seek to petition heaven for mercy, with full confidence in God’s redemptive power. His grace will crush the diabolical strongholds that hold captive our public & governmental institutions. Strongholds that have darken so much of our culture and spiritually blinded so many to the presence of God.
The Eucharistic event will begin at 11:30 AM at the Church of the Resurrection with confession, adoration and a priestly exhortation. The procession proceed up East Michigan Avenue to the Michigan State Capital Building for benediction and a recitation of the patriotic rosary. At the completion of the recitation of the rosary, the procession will move to St. Mary’s Cathedral for a final benediction, repose of the Blessed Sacrament and an inspirational summation of the day by lay evangelist, Paco Gavrlides. Conclusion of the event will be at 4 PM.
