MOE meets Crossroads

This past Saturday, three Missionaries of the Eucharist joined Crossroads as they finished their walks from the West Coast to Washington, DC. Please pray for Crossroads as they continue their missionary work spreading the pro-life message.

MOE has a strong tie with Crossroads being that we base a good deal of our summer walk on their style of walking. A few of our founding members are also Crossroads veterans. They need prayers as they continue to work through the school year in preparation for the March For Life, Spring Break evangelization, and next summer's walks. Know that they are in our prayers too. If you would like more info, please check out their website at www.crossroadswalk.com.

Ahh! That's so exciting! I wish I could have been there! Maybe I should move down to the D.C. area...

And Pat, you look so different without your facial hair. Like a totally different person!

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.
