very briefly, from Joel

The depths we've reached in training and the things we've come to realize have truly shaped my understanding of our mission this summer. God has given us wonderful opportunities to serve Him, and provided immense grace that we may take advantage of those opportunities in the face of spiritual attack. All considered, our responsibility is huge. Pray for us that we may first realize fully this responsibility and that we may second be given the grace to be good stewards of all we've been blessed with.

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.
