Emmaus for Men & Women provides an annual retreat in which to pray, reflect, and enrich a relationship with Jesus. Following the weekend retreat and the spiritual insights that may develop there, Emmaus brothers and sisters are encouraged to share their faith in whatever dimensions of love and service to which they may be called.

The Emmaus Ministry is open to all Men and Women from 21 to 85. The Encounter with Jesus welcomes all who are willing to follow and meet Him wherever they may be in their life or faith.

Men’s and Women’s Emmaus Retreats are each held once a year at the San Pedro Diocesan Retreat Center in Winter Park, Fla. A monthly Emmaus Mass followed by spiritual fellowship and reflection are normally held on the third Saturday of every month at the Parish.

The Emmaus Ministry welcomes any who know and seek greater strength in faith, are uncertain or have lost faith, or remain in the process of perpetually re-discovering their faith. Those who listen, pray, and are open to following Christ are encouraged to walk with Him to Emmaus in this spiritually focused ministry. There is no training needed, Emmaus asks only that its brothers and sisters are available to walk with Christ and encourage others on a journey of faith, praise and the service that follows.
