WELCOME!

Emmaus House is an oasis of quiet in the midst of the busyness of life. Located near downtown Des Moines, Emmaus offers to people of all faiths wonderful spiritual resources, including spiritual direction, retreats, days of recollection, and presentations. We invite you to come and find within the stillness of our house an opportunity to reflect upon your relationship with God, yourself and others. Also, we invite you to join with the community to celebrate the Lord's healing love in the Eucharist.
