Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a dynamic marriage enrichment experience, a unique weekend program where you focus on each other without the distractions of everyday life. There are no open group discussions and you are not required to disclose any aspect of your marriage to others. It is a deeply personal experience for each couple that participates. All you need is a commitment to each other and a willingness to work towards a stronger relationship. Married couples of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome, including those not currently attending worship.
The two of you will be together, away from everyday pressures and distractions. You will learn new ways of communicating deeply and come away with an enriched understanding of each other. Restore, renew, and rekindle your marriage as you learn to love, listen, and share more deeply. Starts Fri. at 7:00 p.m. through Sun. 5:00 p.m.Why not accept the gift of a M.E. weekend? You deserve it!
