Walk to Emmaus and Cursillo Group

Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him. (Luke 24) Many Christians have gone on a walk to Emmaus, and have found it a deeply moving, enriching experience that transforms their faith.  Many others have gone on a Cursillo encounter and emerged with a better understanding of God's call for them and a stronger commitment to living out their faith.  Those in our congregation who have completed a walk to Emmaus or a Cursillo encounter meet on Wednesday mornings at 7:30am to keep the spirit of those experiences alive and to encourage one another in their faith journeys. Sheffield Hall, Joanna Room
