MoE's + Marians + Holy Orders = Praise the Lord!
+ Glory to God! On Saturday July 10th the MoE's were so blessed to be present at the ordination of Father Jim McCormack, MIC to the Sacred Order of the Priesthood at Saint Patrick's Church in Burlington, CT. This picture was taken right after we received his first blessing, what a grace! We were blessed to meet the Marians while studying at the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. where their house of formation is. They are so generous to CUA students, inviting us to adoration and even taking us to Divine Mercy Sunday in Stockbridge, Mass. Brother Rich Mary pictured between Fr. Bob and John is the one who really reached out to us and also organized the trip to Stockbridge twice! Fr. Bob is pictured next to Dee and John is a postulant with the Marians entering the novitiate on August 15th. Thanks so much to the Marians for letting us come on this special day. Please keep this truly awesome religious order in your prayers, especially Fr. Jim :).

God Bless you and thank you for all your prayers for us,
In Jesus through Mary

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.
