Apr 8 2020 8:00PM to 9:00 PM


Virtual Gathering

Emmaus Ministry
Wednesday Virtual Gathering

As parents who have lost a child, we have all experienced how hard it can be to adjust to a “new normal”. Perhaps we’re all feeling a sense of desolation and fear during these most unusual and dark days, and would like to feel some companionship and consolation.

For these reasons, the Emmaus Ministry is going to sponsor, for the foreseeable future, a series of reflections that assure us of God’s mercy  and love for us, and to strengthen us in trusting God’s plan for us, which is love and mercy itself.

These Reflections will be held via Zoom every Wednesday night beginning April 8th, at 8:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time. The meetings will last approximately one hour, beginning and ending with prayer.  The program will include a reflection from our featured spiritual leader for the evening, followed by the opportunity to ask questions  or share comments with our spiritual leader.

All Virtual Gatherings are free; however, you are encouraged to make a “Free Will” offering to the event(s). The Emmaus Ministry will NOT be the recipient of any offering you might choose to make. Rather, we will forward any funds you donate to that night’s Spiritual Leader for use in their Order or Parish, to help defray their expenses at a time when revenue for religious communities and parishes has virtually dried up.

Once you have registered, an email confirming your registration will be sent to you containing a Meeting ID number and Password. You will need to use this Meeting ID number and Password to enter the meeting held that Wednesday night on Zoom.  Please note that we will be registering for one Virtual Gathering at a time.
