RESTORE - Catholic Marriage Help

Restore is an online, self-led marriage resource that gives you and your spouse the opportunity and the tools necessary to heal and restore your relationship. Whether married 6 months or 30 years, the hope for you in this process is threefold; that this will help you grow personally, relationally, and spiritually. Helping you become a better person, a better spouse, and ultimately the best version of yourself. The Restore program will aim to draw from not only psychology and counseling, but also the wisdom of our Christian faith and traditions.

Do you feel alone? Are you frustrated or angry at each other? Do you argue … or have you just stopped talking to each other? Does talking about it only make it worse?

Retrouvaille (pronounced retro-vi with a long i) helps couples through difficult times in their marriages. It is a weekend retreat program led by lay ministers to serve the needs of couples whose marriages are experiencing difficulty. The program consists of a weekend retreat with 6 follow up sessions. This program has helped 10’s of 1000’s of couples experiencing difficulties in their marriage.

The Salt Lake Diocese no longer has a Retrouvaille community due to lack of volunteer couples, however there are other communities that host virtual weekends allowing couples to attend those weekends.
