Mocha Frappes are wicked awesome!

Meghan and I just got back from a great shift. During the Second Luminous Mystery of the Rosary, two bike riders asked to be excused as they went passed us on the sidewalk in Hudson, New Hampshire. As we moved over so they could pass us, one of the boys looked back at us, asking what we were doing. When we replied, "Walking to DC. What are you doing?" Dom, 14, turned around with his friend Matt, 12, and couldn't believe us! After asking some questions about the missionaries, and after they chose to believe what we were doing this summer, our new friend Dom offered to buy us some McDonald's. Matt looked over at Dom and said, "We only have 8 bucks!" but Dom anxiously responded, "They're walking to DC for Jesus. We're getting them a drink!" We met them at the McDonald's about 1/10mile up the road. As Matt was waiting for the Mocha Frappes inside, Dom kept Meghan and I company outside the McDonald's. These two little gentlemen showed us what it is to give all you have, in their case 8 dollars, for another. We will keep you two in our prayers! Pray for us too! And remember, Saint Matthew and Saint Dominic are the coolest saints. And when you get to high school, Dom, remember that The Lord only made one of you, so just be yourself.

best story yet!!! those boys are the real deal!

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.
