A Spiritual Retreat for Parents Who Have Experienced
he Death of a Child of Any Age, by Any Cause,
No Matter How Long Ago

Of all the pains that life can hand us, arguably one of the most searing is the death of a child.  A parent’s world irrevocably changes forever.  Focusing on the spirituality of the grieving process can help tremendously.  As Jesus joined his distraught disciples on the road to Emmaus after his crucifixion, we ask him to join each of us in this ministry.

To meet the needs of Catholic parents whose children have died, the Archdiocese of Newark and Notre Dame Parish now offer the Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents.  A unique, faith-based program providing annual spiritual retreats for grieving parents offered by grieving parents, the Emmaus Ministry offers a safe place where you can find peace, comfort, and hope–at least for a time.

Join us  in a warm and loving environment with others who know somewhat of your pain.


Retreat agenda includes prayer services, spiritual reflections, breakout sessions, Emmaus Walk, and Mass.

The purpose of this 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 reality of life without my child?

All are Welcome!
