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.
It is not too late to register for the ME Experience in Green River. The experience begins at 8:00 pm on Friday and ends at 4:00 pm on Sunday. All married couples are welcome, whether they have been married 3 or 53 years,' Catholics and non-Catholics alike. All can benefit from this private time to reflect on the gift of your marriage. Experience this opportunity to lock out the daily grind and spend an entire weekend focusing on your spouse.
Upcoming Experience dates: Green River, Wyoming, November 4-6. Application fee is $100. For more information or to apply call Dan and Clare 406 - 697 - 3275 or visit our website: wwme.org.
