Emmaus Bereavement Ministry

In their loss, Christ walked with them.

Maesta: Christ Appearing on the Road to Emmaus, 1308-11, Ducci di Buoninsegna

The Emmaus Group of St. Ignatius Loyola offers a safe environment, enriched by our faith, where we meet to share our sorrow, our stories, and our victories over sadness. As a community of faith, we find comfort in the promise of Jesus to be with us always.

If you have recently lost a loved one to death, one or more of the following activities may interest you:

Emmaus Bereavement Support Group
A six-session education and support group for those who are grieving the death of a loved one at least three months prior to the start of the program. The group is facilitated by two bereavement professionals. The sessions are held over a period of nine weeks in order to give the participants time to absorb the material. 

The next session begins on Tuesday evening, October 7th, in the Parish Lounge, from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM.
