Catholic Engaged Encounter/Lead Couple Sessions

Catholic Engaged Encounter

Catholic Engaged Encounter is a weekend retreat away with other engaged couples with plenty of time alone together to plan for a sacramental marriage. It is designed to give couples planning marriage the opportunity to dialog honestly and intensively about their prospective lives together-- their strengths and weaknesses, desires, ambitions, goals, their attitudes about money, sex, children, family,
their role in the church and society--in a face to face way.

Lead Couple Sessions

If you would like to attend marriage preparation at your parish with a Lead Couple, please contact your parish so they may connect you with a Lead Couple.

 Not all parishes have couples who can serve you in this capacity so you may need to choose from one of the other weekend options (Catholic Engaged Encounter or THRIVE! Marriage Preparation).
