A One-Day Spiritual Retreat for Parents
Who Have Experienced
the Death of a Child
Of Any Age,
By Any Cause,
No Matter How Long Ago

Space is limited.
Please register early to ensure your space.

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 Spiritual Leaders 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 schedule includes prayer services, group presentations,
spiritual reflections, breakout sessions, Emmaus Walk, and Mass.

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
Pre-Registration is required.
