The bi-annual Emmaus retreat was held on December 19-22, 2013. There were a total of 29 young adults and 10 leaders, including Fr. Andrew Younan, the Workers of the Vineyard, and seminarians of Mar Abba the Great. The retreat turned out to be a success for all who attended. With talks, activities, reflections, and prayer, the retreatants found themselves spiritually rejuvenated for the entrance of the Lord into their hearts on Christmas day. The retreat was held at the diocesan retreat center, St. George Monastery. The next Emmaus retreat will be held on June 19-22. Registration will be available in April.
