Description:

Spiritual Help for Catholic Grieving Parents

Ministering to grieving parents whose precious children have died can be daunting. There are no words and seemingly, no comfort. Yet the promise of eternal life and the rich teachings of our faith can tremendously help these broken parents who desperately need it.

To meet this need, the Office of Chaplaincy Programs is now offering the Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents, a unique program providing spiritual retreats for grieving parents given by grieving parents. It is a way you can offer your parishioners a safe place where they can find peace, comfort, and hope—at least for a time.

Currently we are offering One-Day and Weekend Retreats. Parents focus on questions, such as “Where is God in my pain? Where is my child right now? Will I ever see my child again?” “How can I get through this horrific situation?”
