Emmaus Retreat Center

In 1989, the Cursillos and ACTS movements were very strong and flourishing, and the fact that there were not as many retreat centers in the area.  With the help of many friends and concerned individuals, a foundations grant-writing was begun.  The Kenedy Foundation and the Mabee foundations were two of the larger grants and with about another 10 smaller grants half of the proposed budget was raised to build a new 56 bed Retreat Center.  Many groups pulled fund-raising efforts to help open Emmaus Retreat Center.
