Walk to Emmaus

The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program that thousands of people around the world have undertaken to renew their heart, mind, soul and strength.

The program’s approach richly models the servant hood of Jesus and encourages Christ’s disciples to act in ways appropriate to being “a servant of all.”


Chrysalis is a weekend experience which takes a look at Christianity as a lifestyle.
It is designed to strengthen and renew the faith of young Christians and helping to renew the Church.
The content of the weekend focuses on God’s grace, how one experiences Christ as a friend and how one is called into discipleship.

Face to Face

Face to Face is specially adapted to meet the needs of Men and Woman 60 years and over and/or those who cannot cope physically with a Walk to Emmaus program.
There are 8 sessions structured in a flexible way. Face to Face will strengthen your spiritual life as well as that of your family, friends and Church.
