The Emmaus Community warmly welcomes new members who would like to discern being a part of our community!
We draw upon Monastic and intentional community formation processes to mutually discern whether there is a call to Emmaus.
Each Fall, we welcome new Discerners into our Community, and this cohort journeys together through our discerner workbook "With Burning Hearts" - led by our Formation Director(s), guests from other monastic communities, and others in the community.
This group meets regularly, and it is expected they will be joining the community in other ways as they travel that path such as joining the community for prayer, worship, meals and action in the community.
After completing the Discernment period, a Discerner may discern, with the community, about becoming a member of The Emmaus Community.
Members are clothed with our symbols and habits; a hoody and an Emmaus medallion
If you are in or moving to Victoria and are interested in joining the Emmaus Community, please send us an email or call us and we'll arrange a further conversation.
