The Engaged Encounter weekend offers couples a unique opportunity to look at their commitment to each other in a deeper way as they prepare for marriage in the Catholic Church.
It also fulfills the diocesan requirement that couples complete a marriage preparation program.
The weekend emphasizes the meaning of sacramental marriage as a holy, permanent bond. It is an opportunity for couples to dialogue honestly and intensively, and learn to communicate more effectively.
Couples are encouraged to attend the weekend at least six months before their wedding. Interfaith couples planning to wed in the Church are welcome.
Upcoming weekends are set for May 18-20 and Oct. 19-21 at the Bishop Molloy Retreat House, Jamaica Estates.
