I am most excited because of the recent visit from the Holy Father. The Missionaries are truly carrying the message that Christ is Our Hope! We are walking this summer to give hope to the Church in America. It is a great joy to be able to live this out and to bring hope to those we meet. God bless you all.
Who we are?
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.
