Some of you may not realize that the ministry of Emmaus House Spirituality Center was established in 1974 by the Jesuits (Society of Jesus) at the request of then Bishop Maurice Dingman. We recently were notified of the death of one of those faith-filled Jesuits who served at Emmaus House in the early 80's. Fr. Bob Leiweke, SJ, who died Tuesday, April 11th, was eighty-nine years old, was a Jesuit for seventy-one years, and a priest for fifty-eight years.
Some of you might remember Fr. Bob, if so, feel free to comment on him and/or share a story from those early Emmaus years.
