Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents
Offers Three Retreats
for the Archdiocese of New York

The Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents collaborated with the Archdiocese of New York to offer One-Day Spiritual Retreats on February 11 and February 25 at St. Joseph’s Seminary in Yonkers, NY and on April 1, 2017 at the Church of the Magdalene in Tarrytown, NY.

Afterwards, retreatants had this to say…

  • “It was wonderful to be around people who know the severity of your pain.”
  • “I do feel 100% better than I have felt in a long time.”
  • “We built a community of compassion and understanding.  Thank you for this special day.”
  • “It was a reminder how people can touch your life in just one day and help ease your grief.” 

For more information, see Highlights for February 11, February 25, and April 1.

Currently, the Archdiocese of New York is considering the possibility of adopting the Emmaus Ministry as one of its own and becoming partners in ministry.
