Emmaus Mornings

Growing in Faith
as a Community

What are Emmaus Mornings?

Emmaus was a town that two followers of Jesus were walking to after Jesus rose from the dead (Luke 24: 13-35). During their journey, there was an unknown man that joined them, and asked about what had taken place, seeming to not know that a man had been crucified, died, and then buried, but had risen from the dead after three days. They enjoyed the man’s company and invited him to stay with them for the evening. When they broke bread at dinner that evening, their hearts and minds were opened by God’s grace to recognize that the man who had walked with them was Jesus. This is what these mornings will consist of – breaking bread with the Lord Jesus in the Mass, sharing a meal as a parish family, and conversing about our faith and life with Christ and one another. This is an opportunity for all parishioners (singles, families, and couples; young and old alike)

When are Emmaus Mornings?

Emmaus Mornings are on the second Sunday of the Month from September through May (May will be on the third Sunday). We will meet after the 9:30am Mass (approximately at 10:30am) and wrap up a little after Noon.

Where will Emmaus Mornings be held?

Emmaus Mornings will take place in the St. Peter School lower level.

What will happen at Emmaus Mornings?

After Mass we will gather for brunch, followed by a speaker for the adults and breakout sessions for children in Kindergarten through 12th grade. This year's theme is on the Sacraments and our life with Christ. Childcare will be provided (We are still looking for volunteers for childcare, contact Michelle LeVeque to assist). At the end we will gather together as a whole group before departing. Throughout the morning there will be opportunities for conversation, asking questions, singing the Lord's praises, games and other activities.
