Requiescat in pace

Please pray for Mr. Hahr, the father of Fr. Karl Hahr of the diocese of Burlington. The funeral is this morning. In case you're wondering the connection, Fr. Karl hosted us in Vermont for a night and is a good and holy priest. Please pray for him and his large family as they go through this grieving process.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon him.
May the souls of the faithfully departed, rest in peace.

St. Joseph, pray for us.
St. Dismas, pray for us.
St. Gertrude, pray for us.

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.
