The Emmaus retreat program is a diocesan-approved weekend retreat that takes place twice a year. It’s open to all men and women ages 20 or older seeking to grow in their relationship with Christ regardless of their present level of faith and practice. The purpose of the weekend is to give adults the opportunity to reflect upon themselves, their relationship with God and their community.
Emmaus is a Catholic retreat program that is open to people of all Christian faiths. It provides its participants the opportunity to reconnect with what matters and share their faith journeys in a loving community. Time is set aside for personal reflection on our lives, our world, and our God.

Matrimonios en Victoria/Marriages in Victory is a lay Catholic international movement and an apostolate in the Archdiocese of Miami with emphasis on marriage enrichment. Through a combination of retreats both in Spanish and English, and weekly follow-up meetings at its various communities, the movement strives to strengthen the married couple’s commitment to growing in their faith and marriage relationship as they discover God’s unique plan for their marriage, and to receiving the necessary spiritual and practical tools to achieve this.
Its main objective is the sanctification of marriage as the fundamental cell of the family, the Church and society. Evangelization, prayer and service are at the heart of all MEV/MIV its various ministries. Among these, the ministry of “Niños en Victoria” offers faith formation and growth to the children while their parents attend their community meetings.
“Therefore, a man leaves his father and mother to join his wife and the two become one flesh” (Genesis 2:2-4)

We teach courses that effectively prepare every Catholic to carry out the mission of our Church: to evangelize and be witnesses of Jesus in our lives. We wish to confirm once more that the task of evangelizing all people constitutes the essential mission of the Church” (Pope Paul VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi, 1974).
Evangelization (SOE) is really an institution of learning and evangelization development. Under the direction of Comunidad Siervos de Cristo Vivo, a lay movement of the Archdiocese of Miami, we currently offer three courses in English: Philip, Isaiah, and Paul. Our objective is to form many evangelizers in our parish, in our homes, in our places of work, all working together to create a new consciousness in our Church, following the instructions we received from Jesus Christ when he said: “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” Participants interested in becoming part of SOE must first complete the 3 courses.
