“Were not our hearts burning within us as he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?…. Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how he was made known in the breaking of the bread.“
Luke 24: 32, 35.
When planning an occasion for a group Retreat, a Spirituality Speaker, a school or church meeting, consider the EMMAUS CONFERENCE HALL at the Holy Dormition Friary. Recently renovated, the air-conditioned Hall comfortably accommodates 56 people seated at round tables. The Center includes a speaker system, podium, along with a TV, DVD recorder, and adequate stands for displays. Upon prior planning and request, Continental Breakfast and Lunch are available. A gift shop and used books to purchase are on the premise. Parking is ample.
Adjacent to EMMAUS HALL are the beautiful chapel, court-yard, walkways, and grounds so marvelously planted and lush with gorgeous foliage and flowers that encourage meditation and prayer for a retreat participant. Upon request groups may ask for Liturgy (Roman or Byzantine) and the sacrament of Reconciliation. Also comfortable over-night facilities for 5 persons are available for private extended retreats.
Welcome, cherished guests.
Come to EMMAUS CONFERENCE HALL – a place to meet the Lord! Then like the two disciples prepare to leave and to tell your story… how you found Him in the Word and in the breaking of the Bread!
