Current Community ByLaws

Here are our approved ByLaws, as of October 2017. They are available in either Microsoft Word (.Doc) or Acrobat (.PDF) format. (Click on appropriate format to begin download.).


Pilgrim Application

Effective July 2021; this PDF Form can be downloaded, completed on-line and emailed for submission. Prior to 2021, forms required printing, manually writing in all the information and mailing via USPS – although not preferred, this method is still acceptable if email access is limited. The new on-line approach makes it faster to submit applications, and it fool-proofs the documents once caused by interpretation of the hand-writing.

The Sponsor should download this file and send to Pilgrim for completion, or obtain the information from the Pilgrim and submit for them. If completed by Pilgrim the form should be emailed to Sponsor for their portion at the bottom and for sending to the Pilgrim Applications Committee . Forms received directly from a pilgrim can not be accepted without Sponsor Information.

The cover page provides information on the application process, email/mailing address, and a brief overview that may help your Pilgrim have a better initial understanding of Emmaus. There is “No-Longer” any advanced application fees. For additional information or assistance in submitting a pilgrim application, please e-mail questions to the Pilgrim Applications Committee. Please Note: any forms dated prior to June 2021 are obsolete and should be thrown away to avoid confusion and errors when processing.

Need AV Equipment or software for your Walk to Emmaus or Chrysalis weekend?

Jim and Donna Morris are Co-Chairing the new AudioVisual Equipment and AudioVisual Software Committees. They have a full equipment suite as well as licensed ProPresenter 6 software available for your use. Here is their first report to the community:

The three month Audio/Video Equipment Fund-Raiser was a success. The goal was $4,500 to purchase (4) four A/V sets for the Emmaus and Chrysalis community, and the total raised was $4,800. The additional funds raised were used to purchase (4) Bluetooth speakers for the videos shown each weekend; and the balance will be donated to the NCAE Sponsorship funds.

Each kit consist of three primary components (1) 84” screen self-contained screen and storage case, (2) 30-60” adjustable projector stand, and (3) a trunk with the projector, laptop table, cables, adapters, Bluetooth speaker, and a “User’s Manual”. The laminated User’s manual has images and instructions for every component in the A/V Set.

The equipment will be stored in a temperature and humidity regulated environment. When needed to start a weekend, contact Jim and Donna Morris for training on how the equipment is used, review of the manual, and to check-out the equipment needed for teaming and the weekends.
