Marriage Encounter

Weekend retreat to nourish your relationship with God and your spouse.


This could be THE Weekend for the two of you to Explore, Rediscover, and Reconnect. Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a weekend getaway that helps married couples rediscover themselves as individuals and as a couple. The Weekend is God-centered and comes out of the roots of the Christian faith. Our Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekends are presented in the Roman Catholic Faith Expression, but we welcome couples of all faiths. Guided by a team of volunteer couples and a priest, each participant explores their relationship with each other, their spouse, and their family.
The Weekend format helps couples communicate openly and honestly, without any group sharing, therapy or marriage counseling.

Great Marriages Don't Just Happen, Couples Make Them!
All marriages need attention, effort and nurturing. Worldwide Marriage Encounter provides an opportunity for you to explore your relationship together and find ways to make it more fulfilling and stronger for a lifetime.

Give Yourselves a Weekend
Worldwide Marriage Encounter, you get away from the distractions of everyday life and focus on each other. The team couples set an atmosphere for open and loving communication. They model the method, and share their own life experiences, making it easier for spouses to talk with each other.
Although your conversations are private between you and your spouse, seeing other couples striving for a better relationship makes it easier for you also to be open to your spouse.

Give your spouse or children the perfect gift of love.
By offering married couples the beautiful experience of a Marriage Encounter weekend, the Catholic Church is affirming & supporting you in your chosen vocation-marriage. Take advantage of this great gift to enhance your relationship and enjoy a love-filled weekend away together.
