Emmaus Journey- A Retreat for Grieving Parents
October 9th - Emmaus Journey: A Retreat for Grieving Parents
Of all the pains that life can hand us, arguably the most searing is the death of a child. A parent’s world irrevocably changes forever. As Jesus joined his distraught disciples on the road to Emmaus, we ask him to join us as we struggle through this journey of grief.
The Emmaus Journey is a faith-based, day-long, spiritual retreat for grieving parents led by a team that includes grieving parents, spiritual directors, clergy, and parish leaders. The Emmaus Journey offers a safe place to seek peace, comfort, and hope. Join us at Redeemer on Saturday, October 9th for an all-day retreat. To register or for more information, contact Diane.
