Welcome to Emmaus Christian Community at the Shrine of St. Joseph

Whether you are a "by chance" visitor passing through, one who comes occasionally, or one who is considering joining our community, we value your being with us. We welcome all people to God's Table.

Emmaus Christian Community is a spiritual grounding place where experiencing and celebrating the mysteries of living and dying build and challenge our Catholic faith. Believing in the uniqueness of the individual, the Community is a people whose freedom flows from a sense of family and belonging, and whose relationships foster deeper spirituality.

Community members seek God by discovering the Christ within and in others -- through liturgy, sacramental life, education, hospitality, and mutual support. Modeled on John XXIII's spirit of inquiry and acceptance, the Community is both challenging to itself as well as tolerant of change, failure, and ambiguity.

The community offers an alternative to the geographically bounded parish. It is circular rather than vertical in structure, encouraging dialogue and listening, and shared responsibility, as well as support of individually initiated ministries. We encourage people to contribute their time and talent, giving of themselves in whatever way they can. Reaching out beyond serving its own needs, the community tries to balance the personal and social gospel messages.
