Welcome to our community!
The first Emmaus Retreat was held in the Archdiocese of Miami at the Dominican Retreat House in 1978. It was developed and conducted by a team of laywomen from St. Louis Church in Kendall and since has spread to parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Miami, other cities, states and even internationally. The retreat is based on the scripture passage found in Luke 24:13-35, where Jesus appears to two disciples who are on the road to Emmaus, after Jesus’ resurrection.
The retreat offers a unique opportunity for personal, spiritual growth simply by discovering a new relationship with God and others. It allows time for you to reflect and affords you the opportunity to meet Jesus on your personal journey; to get away and look at yourself as a Christian / Catholic. It helps you to focus your life in a more positive and meaningful way. The retreat guides you through a series of reflections given by any persons on all aspects of life – spiritual, emotional, physical and relational. You will come away with a renewed sense of priorities.
The retreat begins on Friday evening at 5:00PM and concludes Sunday afternoon at 5:00PM
It is coordinated by the men and women of Nativity Catholic Church
The parish offers one retreat for men and one retreat for women per year, held separately. There is a donation requested to cover the basic costs of the retreat. However, financial hardships should not stand in the way of you becoming closer to God. Please let us know of your situation.
