Frequently Asked Questions

What happens on a Marriage Encounter Weekend?

My Spouse does not attend Church (or is not Catholic), can we still get anything out of a Weekend?

I heard that Marriage Encounter is for "troubled" marriages.  We've been married for (1 year, 10 years or 35 years) and we don't have "issues."  Why should we attend?

We have been on a Weekend, where can I find more information?

When does the Weekend start?

How much does a Weekend cost to attend?

I hear Priests, Seminarians and Sisters can attend Weekends.  Why? 

As a member of the Clergy, why should I attend a Weekend focused on Marriage? 

I'd like to attend a Weekend as a Priest participant, can you help me find someone to cover my Masses?

We are looking to get married in the church, is Marriage Encounter the same as Marriage Prep? 

What does "marriage" mean to Worldwide Marriage Encounter?
