Worldwide Marriage Encounter

What is Worldwide Marriage Encounter?

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a movement within the Catholic Church which began in the late 1960’s with the intention of giving married couples, priests and religious the opportunity to take responsibility for what is happening in their lives.

We live in an age where marriage and family life are under threat.

A Marriage Encounter Weekend offers couples the opportunity to grow closer. It helps people to refocus on the values that are really important to them and to live more joyful and purposeful lives.
