Upcoming Events

The Men's Emmaus Community invites all men to join us at our upcoming retreat scheduled for the weekend of November 17 - 19, at the Miami Youth Center Retreat House, 3333 South Miami Ave, (Next to Lasalle High School at the same entrance as the Shrine of Our Lady of Charity/Ermita de la Caridad).

The weekend is meant for you to disconnect from all the distractions and preoccupations of daily life to fully concentrate on God and personal introspection. We shut off our phones, laptops, and tablets and leave behind all the stress and noise of the “outside world” and focus on sharing in community with like-minded men, from all walks of life, as we strive to grow in faith and get closer to the Lord.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us: Alejandro Santamaria text (305) 785-8296 or e-mail: or Jorge Costales (305) 951-3299 or e-mail:
