For any grieving parent whose child of any age has died
by any cause, no matter how long ago
As a grieving parent, give yourself the gift of
getting away from everyday life for awhile
to focus on your spiritual journey after the
death of your precious child.
Emmaus Minsitry Midweek Gathering Retreats feature
a talk given by Spiritual Leader or Parent Witness focused on
the spirituality of the grieving process for parents.
A short discussion by parents interested in sharing
their reactions will follow the reflection.
Please note: You will not be required to introduce yourself,
tell your story, or share anything at all.
Many parents participate by listening. That being said, you will have the
opportunity to interact with other parents, if you wish.
COST: Optional Free-Will Offering to help cover expenses of this retreat,
but not required.
We will send you your Zoom link and password via email
two days before the retreat.
FUTURE MIDWEEK RETREATS
Emmaus Ministry One-Hour Midweek Gathering Retreats offer a
brief respite from everyday life for grieving parents.
They will be offered monthly via Zoom for the foreseeable future.
