Emmaus Centre

“Now on the same day, two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, and talking with each other about all these things that had happened.  While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them.” Luke 24: 13-15



Life is a journey, with each of us searching for who we are, where we belong, and what we are called to do. The Emmaus Centre is your companion in your journey of faith. We offer information, resources, and programs for all ages at all stages of faith, through:

Catechetics is the education of all ages in our Roman Catholic faith. In our diocese, families may choose enrollment in parish catechetical classes or a home study option. Information on classes is available from the parishes: click here for parish details or contact our catechetical coordinator for the contact name and number for your parish.
