The Emmaus Grieving Parents Ministry supports parents whose spiritual journey includes the death of a child. All who have suffered the loss of a child at any time – including prior to birth and many decades ago – are welcome.
We meet monthly, both in person and on zoom, and each year we host a full-day retreat. The retreat is offered by an experienced, parent led retreat team, supported by the Friars and the entire staff of St. Patrick – St. Anthony Church.
Please consider passing along our information to parents you know who are walking this difficult journey.
Monthly Meetings from October through June:
Emmaus Grieving Parents gather by Zoom (and telephone), on the third Wednesday of each month starting at 7:00 pm.
We gather in person in the Franciscan Center on the third Sunday of the month at 3:30 pm.
We understand that electronic meetings are a challenge under the best of conditions. If you have lost a child and would like to chat with a parent walking the same path, members of our group would be honored to speak with you one-on-one. Please know that you are never alone.
Annual Retreat: Saturday, September 17, 2022.
You are never alone
