Emmaus ECC seeks to provide an inclusive and welcoming Catholic Community, sharing the richness of the Catholic faith
open to a progressive Catholic theology, available and accessible regardless of age, race, national origin, religious affiliation, gender or sexual orientation, and welcoming all regardless of differing abilities. We desire to provide a source for deepening an individual's personal commitment to the life, teachings, and spirit of Jesus through prayer, study and mutual support. We also seek to be engaged in social justice outreach rooted in Christian gospel values, interacting with
the wider community. We are a gay friendly community.
What gives us great joy is to welcome people who grew up Catholic, or in another Christian tradition but feel they no longer fit in or belong in their Church. We also welcome people who grew
up in other traditions, or in no faith tradition; those who seek an inclusive and diverse community. We are a different and valid way to be Catholic.
ECC: A wonderful way of being Catholic!

addressing this issue, we bring to bear, as part of our discernment, the
traditional lens of the Church’s social teaching. This includes giving primary
consideration to the following principles: 1) the Dignity of the Human Person, 2) the Community and the Common Good, 3) the Preferential Option for the Poor, and 4) Subsidiarity
