Emmaus Retreat for Grieving Parents with Marianne Gouveia and Greg Eckerman


What’s Happening?

Of all the pains that life can hand us, arguably the most searing is the loss of a child. During this weekend, just as Jesus joined his distraught disciples on the road to Emmaus, we pray for all of our parents and we ask Jesus to join us as we walk the horrendous journey of grieving our loss every day. We focus on the promise of eternal life and the rich teachings of our faith to help these terribly broken parents.

The retreat is offered by grieving parents who have lost children of their own. We provide an opportunity for parents to gather in a sacred, warm and compassionate space with others who know their pain.

All faiths are welcome. For additional information contact Mariannne Gouveia at 602-549-8932
