on Their Spiritual Journeys

St. Mary’s Parish, 3334B University Avenue, Morgantown, WV 26505

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 He comforted His grieving disciples on the road to Emmaus,
Jesus comforts us and we comfort each other in this very special ministry.

Join other Emmaus Parent Companions and our St. Mary’s retreat team 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.

Retreat agenda includes prayer services, spiritual reflections,
breakout sessions, Emmaus Walk, Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and time for reflection

The purpose of the retreat is 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…Where do I go from here?

All Are Welcome!
