Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents Spiritual One-Day Retreat for Parents Who Have Experienced the Death of a Child of Any Age, By Any Cause, No Matter How Long Ago

April 27, 2019
9:30am-7:00pm

St. Clement’s Church
231 Lake Ave, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

Losing a child under any circumstances is horrendous. Focusing on the spirituality of the grieving process can help tremendously. Just as He comforted His grieving disciples on the road to Emmaus, Jesus comforts us and we comfort each other in this very special ministry.

Join other Emmaus Parent Companions and our St. Clement’s Church Emmaus Ministry Retreat Team in a warm and loving place— to think, to talk, to feel, and to pray. Find compassion, rest, and peace… at least for a time.

All Are Welcome!
Donation: $25 Individuals; $40 Couples
Scholarships are available.

Pre-registration is required.
To register, go to: https://www.emfgp.org/ or download a registration form.

Harley McDevitt is spearheading the effort to bring more Emmaus Ministry retreats to the Diocese of Albany. So far St. Kateri Tekakwitha Parish in Schenectady, St. Clement Parish of Saratoga Springs and St. Edward the Confessor in Clifton Park have heeded the call.  St. Edward’s retreat will be on October 5, 2019.

For more information on adopting the ministry at your parish, call Harley at 518-641-6823 or Diane Monaghan at 617-542-8057.
