Of all the pains that life can hand us, arguable the most searing is the death of a child. A parent’s world irrevocably and horrifically changes forever. As Jesus joined his distraught disciples on the road to Emmaus after his crucifixion, we ask him to join us as we struggle through this horrendous journey of grief daily.

To meet the spiritual needs of Catholic parents whose children of any age have died by any cause – no matter how long ago – the Diocese of Richmond now offers the Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents. A unique, faith-based program providing spiritual retreats for grieving parents offered by  grieving parents, Emmaus Ministry offers a safe place where you can find peace, comfort, and hope.

Join us in a warm and loving environment with others who know something of your pain.
