Retrouvaille and Marriage Encounter

Marriage Support and Resources

You Can Help Your Marriage


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.
