Emmaus is our series for adult faith formation at the Church of Saint Mary.
It incorporates the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) for those discerning a call to become Catholic, but the sessions are open to all. Like the Road to Emmaus in St. Luke’s gospel account, we are taking a journey of faith that emphasizes accompaniment, the unfolding of the mystery of salvation, and formation as disciples.
Emmaus places a huge emphasis on coming to know Jesus, love Him, and then trust Him. Without these three basic relationship components a person won’t believe what God has to say and what He has taught us and given us through Sacred Scripture and Tradition, which are the pillars or our Catholic Faith.
Join us in St. Joseph Hall on Thursdays at 6:30 pm, as we walk the Road to Emmaus with Jesus!
