Emmaus House


A reminder that all Emmaus House events this fall will be offered virtually. If you have family or friends who live outside the Des Moines area, these virtual retreats afford a wonderful opportunity to invite them to participate!

We look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks at one or more of these virtual retreats!

We continue to offer the three weekly virtual offerings below. 

If you are interested in joining us, please RSVP by clicking below so that we can email you the link to the online gathering.

Reflecting on our Experience

Walking With God? Walk with us!  The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in Clyde, Missouri, invite single women, ages 18 - 40 who are considering religious life, to attend a Virtual Monastic Experience via zoom November 20-22. We hope to digitally show discerners around, introduce some of our Sisters, and share some tips on prayer and discernment. The experience will include one hour of input each day. There will also be an opportunity to connect with the vocation director one on one. There is no cost to attend. To learn more, please visit www.benedictinesisters.org. To register, contact Sr. Maria Victoria at (660) 944-2221 ex. 127 or e-mail vocation@benedictinesisters.org.
