The 17th Emmaus of the Carolinas Weekend Retreat for Men is an exceptional event and opportunity to grow in spirit, and will occur on the weekend of August 7 - 9, 2020, at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly Center in Black Mountain, NC.


· Why should I attend?  Men who have attended have experienced a closeness to God, deeper relation with their families, and fellowship to other men of faith, among other effects.  So, if you desire more from your relationships with God, your family, and your fellow man, then fill out an application and come join us!  For more information or to sign up, visit our website:  or email our retreat leader, David Piccuta:
