About the Emmaus Experience

Since 1978

Every year, the parish of Saint John Neumann Catholic Church offers various three-day retreats. There are retreats men in English and Spanish as well as retreats for women in English and Spanish. SJN also offers LEAF (Law Enforcement and Firefighters) retreats for men in the military and first responders. It is a perfect opportunity to reflect, grow stronger in faith, and spend the weekend with new found friends. Emmaus retreats are to be received only once in a lifetime.

Why Emmaus?

Everyone needs to take time away from the hustle and bustle of today’s world to reflect and nurture the Spirit. It’s your opportunity to set some time aside for yourself and be free from the distractions of your daily routine. Join us!
