The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to  strengthen the local church through the development of Christian  disciples and leaders. The program's approach seriously considers  the model of Christ's servanthood and encourages Christ's  disciples to act in ways appropriate to being "a servant of all."  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.  During and after the three days, Emmaus leaders encourage  participants to meet regularly in small groups. The members of  the small groups challenge and support one another in faithful  living. Participants seek to Christianize their environments of  family, job, and community through the ministry of their  congregations. The three-day Emmaus experience and follow-up  groups strengthen and renew Christian people as disciples of  Jesus Christ and as active members of the body of Christ in  mission to the world.

We are praying for you... Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in us the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and we shall be created. And you shall renew the face of the earth. O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may truly wise and ever enjoy your consolations. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
