Emmaus integrates academic and personal experiences with the students’ religious traditions, while at the same time providing a support system for students as they balance studies, family, work, and ministry.
The Emmaus program draws inspiration from the remarkable post-resurrection journey of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus in Luke’s gospel (Lk. 24:13-35). The Emmaus Program journeys with students during their degree program at CTU and assists them in discovering and reflecting on the presence of Christ in their midst. Students’ human and spiritual formation is deepened through retreats and theological reflection groups. Fundamental themes and topics of Christian Spirituality and formation are incorporated into the Theological Reflection Groups and Retreats in a continuing three-year cycle exploring relationships with Self, God, Others and Creation.
