St James Emmaus Ministry

Opportunities to serve…

It is our baptismal call to become disciples, to “go and do likewise”. Emmaus Ministry has become a model of service for individuals, families, churches and organizations to give of their time, talents and treasures. This can be done behind the scenes or with direct hands on opportunities.
