Missionaries in South Dakota

The frontlines of the abortion debate are in South Dakota. A bill has passed through both the state house and senate and has been signed by the Governor. Right now, on the books, all children are safe in the wombs of South Dakota mothers.

Missionaries of the Eucharist is sending Jessica Newman [pictured left]. She will be a voice for the little ones and their moms. Pray for her as she spreads the truth and good will at the pro-life rally this Sunday. Pray that the media gives the pro-life movement favorable coverage.

May our prayers and support keep the babies of South Dakota safe.

More to come!

Just for the record, I believe that the bill takes effect July 1. So the babies aren't safe until then. Continue to pray for Jess and that the babies will be safe then.

Sorry, I think I read the bill wrong. It is probably effective immediately.

No, I think you're right. I also read that it takes effect on July 1.

Who we are?

Every summer we, the Missionaries of the Eucharist, are walking from Lewiston, Maine to Washington, DC to proclaim the beauty of the Catholic faith to everyone we meet, specifically through the Theology of the Body.

Conversion begins in our own hearts,which is why prayer is so important to our ministry. For this reason, everyday of our ten week walk begins with daily Mass. By receiving Christ in the Eucharist, we are given the grace to be the Love of Christ not only to those in our community but also to those we meet in the streets.

We walk throughout the day to be a witness of love. We are grounded in prayer-we pray with our lips, our hearts, and our bodies. In walking an average of twenty-five miles per day, we offer our fatigue as a gift of love to Christ and the people we meet. Our walking is both sacrifice and prayer.
