The Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents
at St. Joseph Catholic Church
11007 Montgomery Road
Beltsville, MD 20705

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

Saturday,  March 14, 2020
9:30 am- 6:30 pm

Space is limited.  Please pre-register by March 1.

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 agenda 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?

All Are Welcome!

This retreat is free, but registration is required.
