We invite you to submit your composition to the National Eucharistic Revival Music Competition, a part of the multi-year National Eucharistic Revival.
Sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Secretariat for Evangelization and Catechesis, this competition invites Catholic artists to submit creative entries spanning a hymn-writing category and a theme song category to give a fresh voice to the truths of our faith.
NPM is proud to be a panelist for the judging of the song submissions. Submissions will be judged blindly and chosen based on:
- Poetry, musicality, beauty, and creativity;
- Theological and doctrinal soundness;
- Appropriateness for liturgical use; and
- Expression of the mission of the Eucharistic Revival (as applicable).
Texts that expound upon the doctrine of the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist and express our unity as the Body of Christ are of particular interest.
Submissions are due April 21, 2023, and the winners will be announced on June 9, 2023.
