Marriage Enrichment . . . for all our Years!

Looking for a way to increase the love and romance in your marriage?  Do you need time just for the two of you?

A Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend Experience may be the answer!

Instead of simply listening to lectures about how to improve your marriage, you will actually learn a practical
communication technique and have an opportunity to rediscover your hopes and dreams for your marriage.  


Your marriage is your most important relationship! NOW is a good time to invest time in your healthy, happy relationship, and reconnect with your spouse.   Renew the commitment, intimacy and passion in your marriage. 


Weekends are for Catholic priests and religious too!
Your commitment to serve your people is similar to the commitment of a husband and wife in marriage. Weekend tools can help you see your ministry in a whole new light and connect more meaningfully with those you serve.  

What People Are Saying

  • Don't wait! Don't put it off! We should have made a weekend 20 years ago, and we would have saved so much time and energy. We talk now, REALLY talk, and listen to each other like never before. We would recommend the weekend for every married couple!

  • We have never been able to fight in a positive way. But we learned about win-win fighting for our relationship on the Marriage Encounter Weekend, and this was just the beginning of our new lease on our marriage. We know now that we can "dialogue" every day to prevent a lot of those fights, but even better we know we love each other even when we disagree.

  • My husband and I belong to different churches, and this has caused tension between us sometimes.  We found out on our weekend that God is in our marriage no matter what and we can work out our differences with respect and love.  I feel so relieved that this issue doesn’t pull us apart any longer.

    Barbara & Peter

    Married 6 years

  • Our lives are full of hectic schedules, kids, work, kids!  It seems we never had a chance to really talk let alone romance each other before our weekend.  Now we have a tool to use to keep US on the front burner.  Thank goodness we made a weekend—we are more alive and in love than we could ever have imagined.
