“These were the fastest four hours I have ever spent!“
“I was able to (participate in an Emmaus retreat)
in person last year and it was transformative….This one was very comparable.”
“It just brought a sense of peace and also community.”

Life for our children has changed, not ended.
They are still very much alive and well and at work in our lives right now.
But we need to be reminded of that fact often.
This is the focus of the Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents,
which serves the spiritual needs of parents
whose children of any age have died by any cause,
no matter how long ago.
This retreat offers Virtual Prayer Services,
a Reflection by a Spiritual Leader familiar with parental grief,
a Parent Witness who will share where he/she is currently
in his/her own spiritual journey after the death of their child,
interactions with other grieving parents through small groups of mothers and fathers,
as well as larger group interactions and one-on-one opportunities, if you’d like.
Participation in all of our 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.
This retreat is offered via Zoom.
You do not need a Zoom account, but you do need to load the Zoom app onto your device.
A few days before the retreat, we will send you the Zoom Meeting ID and Password.
We regret that we are unable to provide technical assistance.
