Almost there!

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?

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.
