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.
