ONE-DAY SPIRITUAL RETREAT
Saturday, February 5, 2022
9 Glen Rd, Wellesley, MA 02481
A Spiritual Retreat for Parents
Who Have Experienced the Death of a Child
of Any Age, By Any Cause, No Matter How Long Ago
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 our St. John-St. Paul Collaborative retreat 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 reflections,
breakout sessions, Emmaus Walk, Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Reconciliation, and time for reflection
The purpose of the retreat is 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…Where do I go from here?
All retreat sessions are optional. All sharing is optional.
We will not be “going around the room” asking you to share your story or feelings.
This is a spiritual retreat, not a support group, workshop, or seminar.
Share as much or as little as you like.
All Are Welcome!
