An Emmaus Experience

Founded 35 years ago in Miami, Emmaus is for those who wish to experience God and renew and deepen their relationship with the Lord.

Emmaus began as a ministry to women in 1978. After intense prayer and much thought, it was established that the theme of the retreat would be based on the Emmaus reading.

 “An Emmaus Experience” is taken from the Gospel of Luke 24:13-35, where two disciples were walking from Jerusalem to the village of Emmaus, when our risen Lord appeared to them and walked by their side. Towards the end of their journey, the disciples came to recognize Jesus in the breaking of the bread.  

Emmaus is an experience where women/men gather to be ministered to by other women/men from the parish. The pastor and other priests are present to hear confession and celebrate Mass at the retreat’s conclusion.  The Emmaus experience is one in which your hearts and your eyes are opened to recognize the living Christ who walks with you along your own life’s journey. It is an experience which perhaps will help you to become ‘homesick’ for the Father’s house and then gave you the courage to return to his embrace.

The purpose of Emmaus is to build parish community and to foster stewardship and prayer. The Emmaus experience can’t really be described; you have to simply experience it yourself. You learn that there is a God that loves you unconditionally.

The Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Emmaus Retreat - “An Emmaus Experience” offers a unique opportunity to pray and reflect upon your individual relationship with Jesus.  Each of us is on a spiritual “journey” and at different stages of our “walk” with Christ.

Wherever one may be on their faith walk, each rests at a different stage of the Journey, but never alone. Jesus is always with us.  This is a 48 hour retreat, where one can leave the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and dedicate this time listening to the Lord.
