Onward!!!

After the craziness of the Boston weekend, everything settled down a bit. It settled down SO much that people started leaving!

Over the course of our weekend in Boston we had nine people with us ... by the Wednesday after the Boston weekend, we were down to only 4 people. Walking with four people has been quite an interesting experience. Looking back on pictures from previous walks, it is so funny to see 9 people walking at one time! That's over double our walk right now.

Pray for us as we walk toward New York City ... and come join 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.
