Marriage Encounter

A chance for married couples to deepen their love for one another and for them and their priests to grow closer to parish family and God.

Marriage Encounter is a weekend experience for couples who have a good relationship, to enrich and improve their awareness of each other and their marriage. The weekend is spent together, away from all the distractions of the modern world, so that the couple have the fullest opportunity to focus on their marriage in total privacy. The weekend gives them the chance to realise how important their unique relationship is to each other, their families, their parish, and the world, and how this fits in to God’s plan. Priests also have an opportunity to renew their relationships with their parish or community and to gain a deeper appreciation of their vocation.

Weekends are held at various centres throughout the country. We also hold Engaged Encounter weekends which are an excellent and worthwhile preparation for the Sacrament of Matrimony.
