About Stichting Acutis

Our mission

Stichting Acutis aims to revive the love for the Eucharist in the Netherlands. This through good entrepreneurship and a modern approach.

We focus on (1) evangelisation, (2) catechesis and (3) offering new tools.

History and background

Stichting Acutis is a foundation established in 2022 with the aim of reviving the love for the Eucharist. The foundation mainly focuses on proclaiming/evangelising the Eucharist in the Netherlands. Stichting Acutis does this through good entrepreneurship and a modern approach. At Stichting Acutis, we are not afraid of a grand approach and are fully committed to a Netherlands that develops a love for the Eucharist.

The foundation was established, on the one hand, to make non-believers familiar with the Eucharist and, on the other, for believers, to strengthen their faith.

​Stichting Acutis is named after Blessed Carlo Acutis. Carlo Acutis’s slogan is therefore “The Eucharist is my highway to heaven”. Acutis showed a tremendous love for the Eucharist and is best known for his exposition on various Eucharistic miracles.

​Stichting Acutis follows his example in proclaiming the Eucharist.

About Carlo Acutis

The Eucharist is my highway to heaven!

Carlo Acutis was born on 3 May 1991 in London, UK, but moved at an early age to Milan, Italy, where he grew up. At a very young age, he showed a deep love and devotion for the Catholic faith. His mother, who was not particularly religious herself, said he had deepened her faith.

One of his most notable actions is that at the age of 11, he started developing a website that catalogued “Eucharistic miracles” from around the world. This website, which documented hundreds of miracles, became a source of inspiration for many people around the world.

​Carlo was also known for his kindness and generosity, especially to the homeless. He had a deep devotion to the Eucharist, which he described as “my highway to heaven”.

In 2006, Carlo was diagnosed with leukaemia. Despite his illness, he continued to profess his faith and inspire others. He died on 12 October the same year at the age of 15.

In 2013, the process of his beatification began. Carlo was beatified by Pope Francis on 10 October 2020. This makes him one of the most recently beatified persons within the Catholic Church. He is known as the “patron saint of the internet”.
