Our Mission


“Blest are you who weep and mourn, for one day you will laugh.”

The mission of The Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents is to:

a. In the Catholic, Franciscan tradition of “All are Welcome,” serve the spiritual needs of grieving parents whose children of any age have died by any cause; and

b. help interested parents, as well as Clergy, Religious, Diocesan Staff, and/or Spiritual Directors bring this ministry to their own parishes or regions
