Come together in this Year of Faith to break bread, reflect and pray.
Find supporting PowerPoints, discussion questions and more to help you organise an "Emmaus meal" event in your parish, community or group.
"He took the bread and said the blessing; then he broke it and handed it to them. And their eyes were opened and they recognised him." Luke 24:30-31
Through breaking bread together and reflecting on Scripture, Catholic Social Teaching and the experiences of our brothers and sisters who do not have enough food, our eyes are opened to the hungry body of Christ in our midst today.
The Emmaus meal booklet provides you with ideas to organise and participate in a simple meal and reflection event and to encourage others in your community to make a difference to people living in poverty.
It is an opportunity during this Year of Faith to explore the richness of Catholic Social Teaching and Scripture on the theme of food.
Simply download the pdf of the booklet now.
Also find supporting resources and materials below to use on the night, and extended versions of the activity sheets to turn this simple one-off meal event into a four-week programme of reflection throughout Lent.
