Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents Retreat

A Spiritual Retreat for Parents Who Have Experienced the Death of a Child of Any Age, By Any Cause


Losing a child under any circumstances is horrific. Focusing on the spirituality of the grieving process can help tremendously. Just as Jesus comforted his grieving disciples on the road to Emmaus, He comforts us and we comfort each other in this very special ministry.

Join other Emmaus Parent Companions and our Retreat Team to think, talk, and pray. Find compassion, rest, and peace…at least for a time.

Retreat agenda includes prayer services, group presentations, spiritual reflections, breakout sessions, Emmaus Walk, and Mass.

Come to this retreat to give yourself the gift of time to focus on your own individual spiritual journey, to focus on questions, such as…Where is God in my pain…Where is my child now… How can my faith help me through this horrible, new reality of life without my child?

All are welcome!

Registration fee: $25/individual and $40/couple.  Lunch and dinner will be provided and are included in your registration fee. If you have any dietary restrictions, be sure to indicate that during your registration.
