About Emmaus

Emmaus is the second course of the St. Andrew School of Evangelization and a further stepping-stone toward a solid foundation for all future courses.  The objective of the course is to walk the path from Jerusalem to Emmaus with the Risen Christ, who makes your heart burn with the flame of the Scriptures; then to return from Emmaus to Jerusalem to proclaim the death and resurrection of Jesus the Lord.  

Participants of the Emmaus Retreat should attend the New Life Retreat first as Emmaus builds on what was started during New Life.  SS. John and Bernard parish plans to offer the New Life Retreat in the fall. Details will be available soon.


The cost of this retreat is minimized by hosting it here at St. Bernard and thus not needing overnight accommodations. To help with the costs associated with the class such as materials and meals, we ask each participant to try to give a $40 donation.  While the class is well worth this amount, we would never want to turn anyone away because they are not able to give that amount, so please give what you can. Donations will be collected the first day of the class.

What to Bring

Each participant is asked to bring their own Bible. Food is included in the registration fee.
