Emmaus – Our School Name

Our school name is taken from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 24: 13-25.

It is a story about Jesus appearing to two people as they travelled to a village called Emmaus. The two did not recognise Jesus so He started to explain the scriptures to them. The two travellers invited Jesus to stay with them and when Jesus blessed, broke and gave them bread, they recognised who Jesus was.

The themes of journey, hospitality, sharing and celebrating the Eucharist fit in very well with the story of the development of Sacred Heart – Emmaus Parish.
