Praise God for giving us Dee and Nick as our walk leaders this summer! Here they are beaming with joy at the doors of the Shrine. They truely were gifts to us and lead us with such love and sacrifice. Please pray that our Lord pours out His grace in abundance into their hearts.
AVE MARIA!!! Our journey to the Shrine ended yesterday with our walk into DC! It was such a time of grace and joy for the missionaries to finally walk up the steps to our Lady's Shrine and to greet our Eucharistic Lord with all of our excitement and thanksgiving. Thank you for all of your prayers for us this summer. Thank you so everyone who has supported us along the way. Thanks to our parents and families for allowing us to make a gift of ourselves this summer on the walk. Thank you to our patrons: Our Lady full of Grace, St. Joseph, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Therese, and Ven. John Paul II... and thanks to Bl. Teresa of Calcutta for always interceding for us. Jesus, most of all, we thank You, we praise You, we love You.

I am currently lying on Lacy Howard's living room floor in College Park, MD. Tomorrow, the missionaries (along with brand new walker Kevin Leopold and last year's leaders Scott Wilkins and Dave Sao) will approach the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC and finish our walk!!! Please pray for us and our final 4 miles!
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.
