The Engaged Encounter Weekend offers couples a unique
opportunity to look at their commitment to each other in a
deeper way as they prepare for marriage. It gives them the
opportunity to focus exclusively on each other for 44 hours
in peaceful surroundings, free from the pressure and
distractions of the outside world.
Though Catholic in origin, this experience is open to any engaged couple wanting to prepare for a deeper, more meaningful life together. The Weekend is an in-depth, private, personal, marriage preparation experience within the context of Catholic faith and values. Learn More.
