Emmaus is packing!

The Emmaus Day Program is packing up and moving to their temporary headquarters while their usual space undergoes renovations.  As of Monday, July 5, The Emmaus Day Program will be at All Saints Anglican Church for the next few weeks.  A whole-hearted thank you goes to Rev. Randolph Bruce for opening up his church the Emmaus program.

Theresa helping with filling boxes and having a great time!

Taking a break from packing...and drawing on the cabinets!

Everyone at Emmaus has been working hard with packing and organizing…and of course having a little fun too!  On Wednesday after they stripped the walls the team decided to “decorate” with a little original artwork before the walls are replaced.

We are already looking forward to September when we will celebrate with a grand re-opening of the newly upgraded and accessible Emmaus Centre.

Can you guess who's who? More great artwork on the walls of Emmaus.

These renovations are made possible with grants from Saint Mary’s Health Foundation and Scotiabank. Thank you for your generous support. The L’Arche Community is excited for the brand new Emmaus Centre!

Jen Kazda, L’Arche Greater Vancouver’s Director of Day Programs is thrilled with what’s happening. “Emmaus is entering a very exciting time!  During the renovation, (starting July 5 and ending mid-August) we will be re-locating to the cool basement of the All Saints church.  We will be running the program at the usual time, with a few more outings. “

To contact someone in the program during renovations, please call the Emmaus Cell phone: 778 994-2293. We will only check our regular voicemail once a day in the morning as well as our email and mail.  So please call the cell phone and leave a message there! Thank you for your understanding and if you have any questions, please talk to us!
