Grieving Parents Retreat September 21, 2019

Of all the pains that life can hand us, arguably one of the most searing is the death of a child. As Jesus joined his distraught disciples on the road to Emmaus after his crucifixion, we ask him to join each of us in this ministry as we continue on our difficult journeys from grief to the healing peace that we, like Jesus’ disciples, can find in the Eucharistic community.

To meet the spiritual needs of parents whose children of any age have died by any cause—no matter how long ago—the Family Life Office offers the Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents. A unique, faith-based program providing spiritual retreats for grieving parents offered by grieving parents, the Emmaus Ministry offers a safe place where you can find peace, comfort, and hope, at least for a time. The entire retreat focuses on the parents’ personal spiritual journey, where one can engage as much or as little as one wants.

 For information go to www.emfgp.org/2019-archny

or contact Sue DiSisto at:


or (646) 794-3191
