Imagine this... an entire weekend created just for you and your fiancé. Time away from home, friends, wedding planning—free of the distractions, pressures and interruptions of daily living. There are no group dynamics or group therapy. It is a quiet weekend, crafted to give you the opportunity to talk honestly and intensively about your future together—a chance to discover a deeper appreciation of your relationship and God’s call to unite in a permanent union, the Sacrament of Matrimony.
In 2017, the retreats will take place at the beautiful Shalom House Retreat Center! This gorgeous setting is secluded and private so you can truly delve into the lessons and your relationship with your partner.
The weekend consists of a series of carefully prepared talks led by a trained team of married couples, and a Priest or Deacon. The members of the presenting team examine what the sacrament of matrimony means to them through stories and personal recollections. This narrative is meant to encourage you and your fiancé to explore your own relationship and your expectations. After each talk, couples are encouraged to dialogue with each other privately to enrich their understanding of the message.
