Emmaus Ministries: A Pastoral Accompaniment to Men
Thursday, July 2, 2020
For the July, 2020 broadcast, Deacons Richard Hudzik and Dave Brencic speak with Jonn Blazey and Deacon Peter Letourneau about the work they both do for Emmaus Ministries. Emmaus, started over thirty years ago by Chicago Deacon John Green, is a ministry of presence and accompaniment to men, typically young men, who are exploited sexually. In a difficult conversation about reaching out, companioning, as well as leading men to a better lifestyle, both Jonn and Peter reflect on how even the most outcast bear the image of Christ. The discussion includes looking at who these young men are, why they are doing what they are doing and what hope there might be for them.
