The Walk to Emmaus
What is the Walk to Emmaus?
At JupiterFIRST, we have many members and friends who have gone through a transformative 3-day experience called the Walk to Emmaus. This is a worldwide movement based on Catholic Cursillo and other 4th Day movements for potential lay leaders in the global church and works to strengthen the local church.
The ‘Walks’ are set on two weekends; a men’s Walk and a Women’s Walk.
The Spring upcoming weekend dates are April 20-23 for the Men’s Walk and May 4-7 for the Women’s Walk.
The Fall upcoming weekend dates are September 21-24 for the Men’s Walk and October 5-8 for the Women’s Walk.
Couples are strongly encouraged to attend the same set of weekends.
To attend the Walk to Emmaus, you must have a sponsor. Please contact Deb McLaughlin at firstname.lastname@example.org or Janice Gutteridge at email@example.com if you have any questions or difficulties in locating a sponsor.
A training event for those wishing to serve on an upcoming Emmaus team will be held on September 10 at 12:00pm in CSR (Center for Spiritual Renewal). To attend the meeting, you must have experienced your own Walk to Emmaus weekend.
