A Eucharistic Missionary is someone who believes in the True Presence of the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and will dedicate him/herself to pray more, participate in and promote the Year of the Eucharist.
Who can be a Missionary? Anyone within and outside of the Archdiocese of Boston is welcome to join us as Missionaries, deepening your own love of the Eucharist, and praying for this Eucharistic Year to bear the fruit in the whole Church.
What does a Year of the Eucharist Missionary do? We call it the Three P’s—Pray, Participate, Promote.
Commit to praying an additional 1% of each day (15 minutes) as a teen or adult. This can be done at home, in front of the Blessed Sacrament, by going to Mass, or reading Scripture, etc. Families and/or youth (12 and under) promise to say at least 3 prayers a day, such as a morning offering, grace before meals, and a bedtime prayer.
Commit to helping with and attending events at your parish, shrine, school, campus ministry, or ecclesial community or consider ways to help homebound missionaries participate, such as picking them up to attend an event and/or have them assist with an administrative task
Commit to witnessing to the power of the Eucharist in your life through giving a witness at the end of a Mass, on a video or at a faith formation gathering, writing something for the bulletin, making a picture to hang up at home, church or school, or spreading the word about your communities’ activities
