About Emmaus

Welcome to Emmaus HouseWhy “Emmaus”? In the Gospel, Emmaus is a place of new beginnings. At the inn at Emmaus two of the disciples encounter the Risen Christ as he breaks bread at table with them and opens their eyes to a new hope. Our community at Emmaus House aims to be open to the new insights and inspirations we need today for our journey together.
