Worldwide Marriage Encounter

Live your best life in love! A Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME) experience could be THE weekend for the two of you to reconnect and revitalize your marriage. It is an experience guided by couples and a priest who help you to rediscover your dreams, rekindle your romance and become more aware of God’s desire for your marriage. Away from the distractions of everyday life, each couple has the time to focus on each other, and learn new ways of communicating more effectively in a private, positive atmosphere. For more information, application, dates and locations, please visit the Worldwide Marriage Encounter website.

Retrouvaille is designed to help heal troubled marriages. The word "Retrouvaille" simply means "rediscover". This program offers the chance to rediscover yourself, your spouse and a loving marriage.

It is designed to help married couples who are anxious about their marriage relationship; alone or distanced from their partner; disillusioned or bored in their marriage; experiencing coldness or conflict; frustrated, hurt, or angry with their partner; and unable to see how to change their situation. Retrouvaille, which emphasizes a unique technique of communication between a husband and wife, combines a live-in weekend with post-weekend follow-up sessions. All names and conversations will be kept confidential. For more information, registration, dates and locations, please visit the Retrouvaille website.
