Emmaus Ministry Retreat for Grieving Parents

October 15 @ 9:30 am - 6:30 pm

$25.00 – $40.00

The Family Life team invites all parents who have lost a child to a one-day retreat led by Emmaus Ministry. Parents who have lost a child of any age, by any cause, no matter how long ago, are most welcome and invited to attend.

Losing a child of any age is horrific to endure. 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 one another in this very special ministry.

Join other Emmaus parent companions in a warm and loving environment to think, to talk, to feel, and pray together. Find compassion, rest, and peace…at least for a time.

Retreat agenda includes prayer services, spiritual reflections, breakout sessions, Emmaus Walk, Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Reconciliation, and time for reflection. Give yourself the gift of time to focus on your own spiritual journey; to focus on questions like: 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? Where do I go from here? 

All retreat sessions are optional, and all sharing is optional. This is a spiritual retreat – not a support group, workshop, or seminar. You are welcome to share as much or as little as you would like.

A light breakfast, lunch, and simple dinner will be provided, along with retreat materials.
