Walk to Emmaus
The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with a 72-hour short course
in Christianity, comprised of fifteen talks by lay and clergy on the themes
of God’s grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship, and what it means
to be the church. The course is wrapped in prayer and meditation, special
times of worship and daily celebration of Holy Communion.
The “Emmaus community,” made up of those who have attended an
Emmaus weekend, support the 72-hour experience with a prayer vigil, by
preparing and serving meals, and other acts of love and self-giving.
The Emmaus Walk typically begins Thursday evening and concludes
Sunday evening. Men and women attend separate weekends.
