Dear Missionaries,

- Of Course, some more community time.
- Discuss the future of the Missionaries of the Eucharist.

We'd love for you to come out and join us. Your presence is what will make a difference. It's what will change the world. To get involved, by walking, praying, or supporting us in some other way, simply just let me know, as soon as possible, so we can arrange housing and food and then show up. Email me at DaveSao[at] Please if you are attending the March for Life with the Missionaries of the Eucharist, please inform how long with you be with us and if you need housing. More info is to come!

I apologize that it's taken us so long to get this information out. It's been a crazy past few months, but we're ready to go.

I pray that the Lord has blessed you and your family this past Christmas season, and may he continue to bless you in the months to come.

In Christ Jesus,

David Aloysius Sao

What time will you gather for Vespers and Dinner on Wed? I will be arriving around 4pm and planning to go to the Vigil Mass at the National Shrine, which starts at 7. Also, when will you arrive at the Verizon Center? You have to get there really early to get in. Doors open at 7am, perhaps? Will you volunteer again? I'll be hearing Confessions and concelebrating. Hope to see you all there!

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.
