Who Have Experienced the
Death of a Child of Any Age,

ONE-DAY SPIRITUAL RETREAT

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.
Designed for grieving parents whose precious children of any age (from conception to old age) have died by any cause (miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, illness, accident, suicide, murder, overdose, etc.),
no matter how long ago.
Retreat agenda includes prayer services, spiritual reflections,
breakout sessions, Emmaus Walk, Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and time for reflection
Give yourself the gift of getting away from everyday life 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?
This is your day to focus on your spiritual journey. Share as much or as little as you like, without being forced to speak.
Many people participate by listening only.
All Are Welcome!
