Mission / Vision
Emmaus Journey is a Catholic evangelization and discipleship ministry that is conducted primarily in and through Catholic parishes. Emmaus Journey has embraced Goal One of Go and Make Disciples: “To bring about in all Catholics such an enthusiasm for their faith that, in living their faith in Jesus, they freely share it with others.”
Our Mission and Vision are inspired from Luke 24:13 - 35
"...Were not our hearts burning [with-in us] while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?" (verse 32 NAB)
Emmaus Journey endeavors to accomplish this goal in support of the Church by:
Helping Catholics who only occasionally practice their faith or who are nominal in their commitment, to experience conversion to Christ.
Encouraging individuals to experience transformation in Christ as they grow in understanding and commitment to Scripture and the Church’s teachings.
Mobilizing Catholics to become actively involved in sharing their faith among the non-religious and in the process of forming disciples.
By providing high quality, thoroughly Catholic, practical small-group bible study materials, evangelization and discipleship resources, seminars, and ministry events that help equip Catholic parishes and individuals to do the ministry of evangelization and discipleship.
Emmaus Journey has staff located in numerous cities throughout the United States. In addition Emmaus Journey ministries exist in several countries outside of the United States.
Emmaus Journey is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt public charity. Contributions to Emmaus Journey are deductible under section 170 of the IRS code.

Emmaus Journey is a lay Catholic evangelization and discipleship ministry which partners with parishes, small groups and individuals to facilitate a personal encounter with and conversion to Christ, thereby forming missionary disciples actively living for Jesus.
By encountering Christ through scripture, discipleship and community—individuals experience: 1) conversion to Christ; 2) transformation in Christ; and 3) mobilization for Christ, where they are actively involved in sharing their faith with others and living out their faith in the greater community. Thus achieving Goal One of the USCCB’s initiative on evangelization, “To bring about in all Catholics such an enthusiasm for their faith that, in living their faith in Jesus, they freely share it with others.”
