Emmaus is a retreat experience where men gather to be ministered to by other men. It is for men who wish to experience God, renew and deepen their relationship with the Lord, a time for personal growth. We have two men’s retreats per year approximately six months apart. The retreat is based upon the Gospel of Luke 24:13-35 “Were not our hearts burning within in us?” We also come together for weekly fellowship, we gather to read the following Sunday’s reading from the Mass and discuss how we can apply them to our lives today, and how they are relevant to living in the 21st century.
