Emmaus House 50th Anniversary

Aug 25, 2017

Emmaus House has come a long way over the years, from humble beginnings with Father Austin Ford in the 1960’s. We’re grateful for our partnership with the residents of Peoplestown and look forward to celebrating all that we have accomplished together over the past 50 years during a three-day celebration September 15 – 17, 2017. 

In recognition of this milestone, Emmaus House will host a cocktail reception in Ezzard Hall to kick off a weekend of festivities. Please join us to reunite with old friends and to share stories of how Emmaus House has impacted your life.
