The retreat weekend creates an atmosphere for the two of you to concentrate exclusively on each other, free of the distractions, pressures, and daily interruptions of life - a "time out" away from home, friends, and wedding preparations.

It is a quiet weekend, specifically designed to give you the opportunity to talk honestly about your future together - an opportunity to discover a deeper appreciation of your relationship and God's call to unite in a permanent union, the Sacrament of Matrimony.

Presenting teams usually consist of two married couples and a priest who give a series of presentations about issues such as Communication, Intimacy, Values, and Sacramental Marriage. After each presentation, you'll be given a series of questions to complete individually. You'll then have time to share your thoughts and written answers quietly with one another.

With the exception of meals and a few group activities, personal reflection and dialogue are the main emphasis of the weekend.

Most people spend many months and thousands of dollars preparing for their wedding. The question we ask is, "Are you willing to spend one weekend devoted to exploring ideas and learning tools that will help to make your marriage the best it can be for the next 50 years or more?"
