Retrouvaille (pronounced 'retrohv-EYE') is a weekend program that helps couples heal and renew their marriages. Retrouvaille is a French word meaning rediscovery. This Catholic ministry offers tools needed to rediscover a loving marital relationship. Thousands of couples headed for cold, unloving relationships or divorce have successfully overcome their marriage problems by attending the program. Retrouvaille is not just for hurting couples but for all couples wanting to bring new life to their marriage. Retrouvaille is recommended by the archdiocesan Office of Marriage and Family Life.

The next weekend programs coming up in this area are in San Francisco: April 28-30 and November 3-5. A flyer with complete information is here.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter Program


Worldwide Marriage Encounter 
in Mountain View 

Friday - Sunday, May 19-21
or
Friday - Sunday, November 10-12

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a weekend for married Christian couples who value their relationship, desire a richer, fuller life together, and want to learn the tools needed to make a marriage strong. The emphasis of Worldwide Marriage Encounter is on communication between husband and wife, who spend a weekend together away from the distractions and the tensions of everyday life, to concentrate on each other. It's not a retreat, nor a marriage clinic, nor group sensitivity. It's a unique approach aimed at revitalizing Christian marriage. Worldwide Marriage Encounter is recommended by the archdiocesan Office of Marriage and Family Life. The website is www.wwme.org.

HOW IT WORKS:  A series of presentations is made by the Presenting Team, consisting of three married couples and one priest. Each presentation builds on the last, as we examine ourselves, our behaviors and attitudes, our relationship with our spouse and God. Communication tools are taught that can help couples connect in healthy, constructive ways in areas that can deepen their intimacy.

Marriage Encounter Weekends have been given in the U.S. since 1967. Decades of research and planning, and lots of tried-and-true wisdom have gone into the content of the weekend and how it unfolds. All sharing between spouses is PRIVATE, and this is NOT a weekend to solve problems! This weekend will help couples in good marriages communicate even better.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter
May 19-21  -  or  -  November 10-12
Hilton Garden Inn Mountain View, 840 East El Camino Real, Mountain View
