Marriage Encounter Weekend
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. Marriage Encounter is a weekend retreat for married couples who want to rediscover the joy of their marriage.

Marriage Encounter Circle
A Worldwide Marriage Encounter Circle is a group of couples that have experienced a Marriage Encounter Weekend. The purpose of the group is to provide ongoing support for their marriage relationship, family life and all other relationships around them. The group meets monthly in the comfort of the host couple's home; a presentation is given followed by sharing. The sharing is optional; no one is required to share. Afterward, a few business items are discussed and information with regard to upcoming events are announced. The meeting ends with a prayer, and socializing. After attending a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend, all are welcome to join a Circle.
Circles are formed throughout the Diocese. It is suggested that a couple join a group that is nearest their home. However, you are welcome to join any group that you are most comfortable with, or meet on days most suited to your schedule. Meetings are held on the First Friday and the Third Saturday of the month.
