Emmaus Ministry Monthly Meeting Attracts Grieving Father St. Anthony Shrine’s Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents held its monthly meeting after the 10am Mass on Sunday. This meeting marked a first as there were more fathers who had lost children than mothers in attendance. Parents grappled with the questions of … How and why did this happen to me and my child? How do I go on? Where is God in the death of my child and in my life right now? How can my faith help me right now?

Members of the ministry meet the first Sunday of every month after the 10am Mass. During Lent the ministry will also be offering two Brown Bag Lunch Retreats (March 9 and March 16) and a One-Day Spiritual Retreat on March 21. See www.emfgp.org or call Diane, Mother of Paul, at 617-542-8057 for details.
