The Walk to Emmaus Experience
The "Walk to Emmaus" is a 72-hour experience. The weekend begins on Thursday evening and ends Sunday evening. At Emmaus, you will spend three busy but very enjoyable days, usually at a retreat center. You will live and study together in singing, prayer, worship and discussion. Discussions center around fifteen talks given by laity and clergy. These talks present the theme of God's grace, and how that grace comes alive in the Christian Community and expresses itself in the world. You'll also discover how grace is real in your life, and how you can live in the life of grace, bringing grace to others. You will have the opportunity to participate in the daily celebration of Holy Communion and to begin to understand, more fully, the presence of Christ in his body of believers. You will experience God's grace personally through the prayers and acts of service of a living support community.

Chrysalis is the name chosen for the youth walk to Emmaus because it symbolizes faith growth in the lives of high school and college aged young adults -- the spiritual growth that is necessary between adolescence and adulthood. It is a crucial time of maturing faith for discipleship. Chrysalis has its roots deeply planted in its parent movement, the Walk to Emmaus. Chrysalis is a three-day spiritual renewal retreat that provides participants an opportunity to learn more about the faith, to experience Christian love and support, and a chance to make new commitments in their faith journey. The content of the three days focuses on god's grace, how one experiences Christ as a friend in the body of Christ, and how one is called into discipleship, giving love to a needful world.
