A Weekend Journey on the Road to Emmaus The Appearance on the Road to Emmaus - Luke 24:13-35

"Were not our hearts burning within us"?

  • Why Emmaus?
    Everyone needs to take time away from the hustle and bustle of today's world to reflect and nurture the Spirit. It's your opportunity to set some time aside for yourself and be free from the distractions of your daily routine.
  • What is Emmaus?
    It is a retreat put on by the men of St. John Neumann, where you will spend the weekend with newfound friends.
  • What happens on the weekend?
    You will hear talks given by different men from the parish; no lectures or assignments.
  • When? How long?
    November 30th - December 2nd - The retreat begins Friday evening and ends Sunday afternoon. It will be held at the Youth Center (Next to La Salle High School & Our Lady of Charity Shrine - Next to Mercy Hospital): Address: 3333 South Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33133
  • How much does it cost?
    $150 is the suggested donation but scholarships are available if needed. Make checks payable to SJN Men's Emmaus.

““But the wise shall shine brightly like the splendor of the firmament, and those who lead the many to justice shall be like the stars forever” DN 12:3

The readings speak of the end of the world and the coming of the Kingdom. Our ‘life to come’ is in continuity with this present life through the human goods, the worthy human purposes, which people foster now.” May our good stewardship cause us to be numbered among the chosen on the last day!
