Losing a child under any circumstance 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 our Diocese of Madison-St. Mary’s 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 Leader reflection,
large and small group presentations, breakout sessions,
one-on-one Emmaus Walks, Reconciliation, and Mass.
All sessions are optional.
Come to this retreat 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?
Participation in all sessions is totally optional.
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 ample
opportunity to interact with other parents, if you wish.
All Are Welcome!
Cost: $25/Individual; $40/Couple
Retreat cost includes lunch, dinner, snacks and all retreat materials.
Scholarships are available.
