Marriage Encounter Opportunity Mar 19, 2021

Fifth Sunday Of Lent

A Weekend of Discovery… a lifetime of love

A Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME) is a weekend away, offering married couples, a special kind of “time out”, a different kind of “weekend getaway”. It is an opportunity to recharge your relationship batteries and more deeply explore the precious nature of your relationship. It gives you the tools to keep your passion alive in a gentle, nurturing environment, away from the pressures and distractions of daily living.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is for couples with sound marriages who want to take their relationship a step further and enrich and/or revitalise their marriage. The weekend is not equipped to deal with problems like domestic violence, infidelity or separation.  Worldwide Marriage Encounter is definitely NOT marriage guidance or marriage counselling. There are various government and privately funded counselling services offering assistance to marriages in crisis.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is also for priests and religious (I would definitely love to go on this weekend (Fr Josh)).  It gives you the opportunity to grow in your relationship with your spouse – your community, your parish, the people of God.

The Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend is based on Catholic values, but you do not have to be Catholic to attend. Couples of all faiths or no faith at all are welcome.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is faithful to the Roman Catholic Church’s teaching that marriage is a covenant that exists between one man and one woman.  Any reference to marriage or couple made by WWME is in this context.
