Emmaus Ministerial Renewal


There are stages in life when it can be helpful for clergy and religious to have the time and space to review their life and ministry in a safe, supportive way.


The Emmaus Ministerial Programme provides professional support in a safe, confidential environment. Participants are encouraged to build upon the achievements they already have made in ministry/religious life, whilst also having a safe place to discuss challenges and areas of growth.


This iself-referral programme offers support and encouragement for living healthy life and ministry.




The Renewal Programme has three components:

  • Completion of a pre-visit questionnaire (that you will bring to the Centre)
  • Two in-depth interviews with a spiritual director and a psychologist or counsellor to review your psychological, ministerial and spiritual life, plus a computer questionnaire 
  • Private feedback meeting and follow-up letter that outlines the discussion and includes any recommendations to consider for the future.
