Frequently Asked Questions

Open AllClose All
  What is Emmaus 90?
  • Inspired by the National Eucharistic Revival, Emmaus 90 is a 90-day journey for Catholics seeking closer relationship with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Each Emmaus 90 "pilgrim" is given a daily prayer prompt for each of the 90 days between New Years and Easter, challenging practices to grow in holiness, and weekly formation videos (30 minutes long) on the beauty of our Catholic faith to discuss with a small group of fellow pilgrims (by livestream on Thursdays or its recording for those who can't join us on Thursdays), and registration includes a guidebook journal for your journey.


  • This 90-day journey is to help you grow closer to Jesus, especially in the Eucharist, and to prepare you to live as a “Eucharistic Missionary” in your family, workplace, parish, and neighborhood.
  Why is the Archdiocese offering Emmaus 90? Why would I want to do Emmaus 90?
  • Emmaus 90 will help you and all who participate to grow in Holiness and deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist through daily prayer with Scripture and other practices to help you grow in holiness. It can also help deepen your relationship with your parish community and your small group or family journeying with you.


  • Inspired by the National Eucharistic Revival, the Archdiocesan Office of Evangelization and Catechesis is offering Emmaus 90 to help Catholics enkindle a deeper lived relationship with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and answer the bishops' call to go out on mission as Eucharistic Missionaries
  How much does it cost?
  • $20.00 Per “Pilgrim” (includes one hardcopy Guidebook)


  • $40.00 Per “Family” (includes electronic family guide and two hardcopy Guidebooks; additional guidebooks for older children who would use the daily journaling pages contained in the Guidebook can be purchased for $20.00 each).
  When does the Emmaus 90 program begin and end?

  • January 1, 2024 – Easter 2024

  • Formation Sessions are live streamed every Thursday evening and recordings will be available for those who cannot participate live.

  How & when will I receive the hardcopy Emmaus 90 Guidebook?

  • For those who register by December 10, your printed copy of the Emmaus 90 Guidebook will be mailed to the address provided in your registration by the end of December 2023.

  • If you register after December 10, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a printed version of the Guidebook, but you will receive an electronic copy. Thank you for understanding!

  I hear Emmaus 90 is for small groups. How do I get into a small group?

  • We strongly encourage you to find a “Pilgrim Group” of 2-3 friends, family, or fellow parishioners to journey through Emmaus 90 with you. 

  • Some men’s groups, women’s groups, and Bible Studies, choose to do Emmaus 90 together. We LOVE this! We encourage bigger groups to break into smaller groups of 3-4 people for the discussion each week–even if you gather together as a larger group for the formation sessions.

  • Here are some ideas for connecting with a group:

    • Ask God to help you think of who in your life you would like to encourage to grow in their faith OR who would encourage you to grow in your faith. Ask God to open the door for you to have a conversation with and invite them to join you.

    • Some parishes are hosting “watch parties” for the Thursday formation sessions. Check with your parish to see if they are hosting a watch party with others you could join, or if your parish leaders know of anyone else in your community who may want to join your pilgrim group.

    • Meet someone you’ve seen at Mass and ask them if they are interested in joining you on this 90 day journey.

  Do I have to have a small group to participate in Emmaus 90?

While we strongly encourage you to get a Pilgrim group of 2-3 people to take the Emmaus 90 journey with you, you can participate as an individual if you do not have a group. If you participate as an individual without a pilgrim group, we encourage you to journal your responses to the small group discussion questions and talk with someone about your experience each week.

  What do Emmaus 90 small groups (Pilgrim Groups) look like? How can I start one?

  • The time and location of your small group will look different for everyone! It is recommended that each small group discuss when & where they would like to meet (in person or virtually), and if they want to watch the formation sessions together each week or watch the session on their own and simply meet to discuss it.

  • Discussion questions are provided and members are encouraged to share authentically to the level of their comfort. 

  • Learn more by watching one of our “Emmaus 90 leader training sessions” either on one of the zoom dates or watch the recording. 

  I plan to be Emmaus 90 small group leader, what resources are available to help prepare me to lead a group?

  What is the "electronic family guide" for Emmaus 90?

The Emmaus 90 Family Guide is a short booklet provided as a PDF that helps parents understand how to adapt Emmaus 90 practices & pilgrim group discussions for their family. For families with children, it helps them understand how to adapt Emmaus 90 practices and formation to their children's developmental ages and stages.

  How do I access the Weekly livestreamed formation videos each Thursday evening?

  • When you register, you will receive an email confirmation containing a link to our Pilgrim Website, where you will find the livestream (or recording if you miss the livestream) each week.

  How do I learn more about the National Eucharistic Revival and what is offered for the revival in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee?

  • Our world is hurting. We all need healing, yet many of us are separated from the very source of our strength. Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith in the celebration of the Eucharist. The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is joining bishops, dioceses, parishes, and apostolates from across the United States in a moment of National Eucharistic Revival, which intends for all Catholics to be healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist — and sent out in mission “for the life of the world.” Emmaus90 is a 90-day journey for Catholics seeking closer relationship with Jesus Christ, especially in the Eucharist. Find out more about our local Eucharistic Revival plans in the archdiocese here.

  • The National Eucharistic Pilgrimage will pass through the Archdiocese of Milwaukee from North to South on June 19-26, 2024. More info coming soon.
