EMMAUS is a two year program focusing on the contemplative dimension of a spiritual direction ministry. Limited to twelve persons in each class.

Year One:  10 seminar Saturdays in person

Year Two:  10 seminar Saturdays in person


Each Saturday gathering will focus on a particular aspect of the spiritual direction ministry.

  • There will be a time for prayer, two seminar sessions, informal sharing over a lunch box meal. 
  • It takes time and leisure for integrating and internalizing the material presented.
  • The day concludes with a simple prayer ritual.


Participants will commit themselves to personal prayer, attentiveness to God's stirrings in daily life, on-going spiritual direction and personal study of the readings assigned.
