Marriage Encounter & Enrichment

A Journey of Discovery, a Lifetime of Love

Worldwide Marriage Encounter

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a weekend for married Christian couples who value their relationship and desire a richer, fuller life together. Attend a Marriage Encounter weekend and learn the tools needed to keep your marriage strong.

The emphasis of Worldwide Marriage Encounter is on communication between husband and wife, who spend a weekend together away from the distractions and the tensions of everyday life, to concentrate on each other.

It’s not a retreat, nor a marriage clinic, nor group sensitivity. It’s a unique approach aimed at revitalizing Christian Marriage.

This is a time for you and your spouse to be alone together. To rediscover each other and together focus on your relationship for an entire weekend. Every marriage deserves that kind of attention!

  • Rediscover the spark that was there on your wedding day!
  • Rediscover the best friend you had when you were first married!
  • Join the millions of couples worldwide who have learned how to keep their marriage vibrant and alive!

Marriage Takes Three Enrichment

“It is the presence of the Lord, who reveals Himself and the gift of His grace, that will render your marriage full and profoundly true.” – Pope Francis

Married Couples are encouraged to attend periodic Enrichments to reflect on their marriage and find areas where good marriages can become even better.

Marriage Enrichment provides an experience that is personal, inviting, timely, engaging and allows a space for growth and formation in the Sacrament of Marriage for couples in civil unions seeking Convalidation in the Catholic Church.  Enrichment will supplement preparation by your parish priest.

Catholic Church law ordinarily requires baptized Roman Catholics to marry before a priest or deacon.  Catholics who exchange vows in the presence of ministers from other religious traditions or civil officials are not considered validly married in the eyes of the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Church invites you to bring new meaning to your lives by embracing the vocation of marriage and dedicating your family’s mission to sharing God’s love.
