Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents Retreat

Spring 2021

Virtual Spiritual Retreats

for Grieving Parents via Zoom in Your Home

Losing a child under any circumstance is horrendous. Focusing on the spirituality of the grieving process can help tremendously.

Just as he comforted his grieving disciples on the road to Emmaus, Jesus comforts us and we comfort each other in this very special Catholic ministry.

Join other Emmaus Parent Companions and our Spiritual Leaders in a warm and loving place - to think, to talk, to feel, and to pray. Find compassion, rest, and peace... at least for a time.

During these challenging times, physical retreats are not possible. However, Live, Virtual Emmaus Retreats continue our tradition of offering grieving parents the peace and comfort of knowing that life for their children has changed, not ended.

All are welcome! Your choice...

10:15 am – 3:30 pm

A five-hour online spiritual retreat that includes prayer services,
a reflection for grieving parents given by a Spiritual Leader, and interaction with other grieving parents. See here for more details.
