MIDWEEK GATHERING RETREAT
Sponsored by the Archdiocese of New York
Ellen and Michael Walker, Parents of Michael
Wednesday, October 19, 2022
Michael and Ellen have been married for 46 years and are the parents of three sons.
Our eldest son Michael, passed away 11 years ago at the age of 29.
As we grieved the physical loss of our beloved son, we received many
spiritual gifts that helped us in our healing process. We attempt to share
what we have learned and experienced with other grieving parents,
so that they do not feel that they walk alone in this process.
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 Ministry 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
