We're in Vermont!

To all moms and dads who have been worried because we haven't been blogging- I apologize. The hills of Maine and Vermont do not allow for internet access very often.  Regardless, it has been a great three weeks of walking, praying, and spending time with one another.  Each day we are all learning how to live in community with one another; the (four) men and (three) women are learning how we can best serve one another. 


The Lord has been so generous to us with wonderful people who teach us how to live the Catholic faith, great food, an abundance of funds, and the perfect amount of available showers to keep us humble :).

More blogs will be coming soon along with a video to introduce all of our walkers! God bless you all and please keep praying for us!



in Jesus and Mary,

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.
