From the leader's desk ...

Oh, man. Leading is definitely difficult. Leading many people down the east coast, while maintaining a prayer life, daily Mass attendance and managing our time has been the most interesting experience.

Therefore, this is a shout out to Br. Peter Martyr and Josh for doing a lovely job over the past two summers. To all the past walkers who have put up with my insanity over the past three years ... thank you. Finally, my current walkers will not read this until after the walk, but I would like to thank you all for trusting me enough to put your lives in my hands.

I ask that each of you continue to pray for me because I NEED IT!!!

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.
