DETROIT — High school and middle school students spent a morning with Jesus on March 5-6, respectively, adoring the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament and learning about the profound gift of the Holy Eucharist.

Sacred Heart Major Seminary hosted the twin mornings of reflection, called "The Summit," sponsored by the Archdiocese of Detroit's Department of Catholic Schools.

The event's title hearkens to the teaching of the Catechism of the Catholic Church that the Eucharist is the "source and summit" of the Catholic faith. The events dovetailed with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' National Eucharistic Revival, which aims to deepen faith in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

Schools from across the Archdiocese of Detroit were invited to attend the morning of prayer, which included breakout sessions in which students strengthened their understanding of the Eucharist, lunch and an opportunity for Eucharistic adoration.
