Executive Director of the National Eucharistic Congress Tim Glemkowski will speak on “The Eucharist and Revival: What God Did and What God Is Doing” at the New York State (NYS) Eucharistic Congress in Auriesville, set for October 20-22 at Our Lady of Martyrs Shrine.   

“I accepted the invitation to speak at this event because I was inspired by the unified effort on the part of all the New York dioceses to put on this remarkable and historic opportunity for New York Catholics,” Glemkowski told The Good Newsroom in an interview. “What a gift to be a part of such a unique moment for the Church in New York State. My wife grew up in Cortland, so I have a great love for the state and am excited to be in Auriesville for the first time at the Shrine.”  

He added that in his talk he will “tell two stories that have changed my life. The first is: why the Eucharist? I want to show how the story of salvation lands at the gift of Jesus Himself to us ‘until the end of the age.’ Then, I want to talk about: why a revival? What is God doing in His Church to invite a missionary conversion, and how does the Eucharistic Revival fit in that movement?”  

Glemkowski previously served in the archbishop’s office for the Archdiocese of Denver as director of strategy, helping to set up the archdiocese for a time of apostolic mission. He is the founder and former president of L’Alto Catholic Institute, an Illinois-based, not-for-profit apostolate dedicated to helping parishes form disciples; and he helped build Revive Parishes, online training for parish leaders.                              

He authored “Made for Mission: Renewing Your Parish Culture,” which was released in 2019 through Our Sunday Visitor. He is an international speaker who has also served as a consultant for many organizations, dioceses, and parishes. His writings have appeared in numerous print and web-based theological and catechetical publications.      

He graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville with a double major in philosophy and theology. While teaching high school theology, Glemkowski also received an MA in theology from the Augustine Institute in Denver. He and his wife, Maggie, live in Colorado with their three young children.   

The NYS Eucharistic Congress will be held over 40 hours beginning Friday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. Eucharistic Adoration will take place each night from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m.           

 The principal Mass will be celebrated by Cardinal Timothy Dolan at 11 a.m. Saturday. The Eucharistic Congress will conclude with the 11 a.m. Mass on Sunday, celebrated by Bishop Edward Scharfenberger of Albany. There will be a Eucharistic procession Saturday afternoon.
