Catholic Engaged Encounter is an intense weekend experience offering you the time and opportunity to deepen your relationship with each other and with God. Although Catholic in origin, Catholic Engaged Encounter is open to any couple of any faith who are preparing for a marriage that would be recognized by the Catholic Church. Formal engagement is not necessary; a couple need only to be seriously considering marriage
Facilitated by volunteer presenting teams, you and your future spouse learn valuable communication and conflict resolution skills, explore the role of religion and values in your lives and discuss important topics like children, marriage as a sacrament and the power of commitment. You will be stimulated to discuss privately with each other all aspects of married life- always from the viewpoint of your own relationship. The emphasis is not on lectures or group discussions. this is a private experience in a quiet and informal setting. Personal reflection and couple dialogue are the main focus of the weekend.
The weekend experience consists of personal presentations, individual reflection and focused discussions with your future spouse. Take time out of your busy lives to focus on your relationship with each other and God.
