About Emmaus

Emmaus is the second course of the St. Andrew School of Evangelization and a further stepping-stone toward a solid foundation for all future courses.  The objective of the course is to walk the path from Jerusalem to Emmaus with the Risen Christ, who makes your heart burn with the flame of the Scriptures; then to return from Emmaus to Jerusalem to proclaim the death and resurrection of Jesus the Lord.  

Ideally participants of the Emmaus Retreat would have attended the New Life Retreat first as Emmaus builds on what was started during New Life.  St. Francis de Sales plans to offer the New Life Retreat in the fall.  Click here to learn more about New Life.  If there is space, however, we will open the Emmaus Retreat to those who have not attended New Life.  See the registration information for more details.
