Worldwide Marriage Encounter

A Weekend of Discovery… A Lifetime of Love

Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME) has been providing weekends of enrichment for couples, priests, and religious for 40 years. Any married couple who desires a richer, fuller life together will benefit from attending a WWME weekend whether they have been married for only a short time or many years. A Marriage Encounter weekend is also ideal for priests and religious who are ready to experience a deepened and enriched sense of their vocation in life.

A WWME weekend is a private couple experience that revitalizes Christian marriage and helps couples become excited about each other and about their relationship. If, over the years, your sense of romance and passion has given way to practicality, spending a weekend together re-connecting is something you deserve.

During the weekend, a series of presentations are given by a team of three Catholic couples and one Catholic priest. They provide a rare opportunity for attendees to look at themselves as individuals, then to look at their spousal relationships, as well as their vocations and relationship to God, the Church, and the world. The presentations are given to the group as a whole. After each presentation, the husband and wife have time in the privacy of their room for their own personal reflection and discussion. Sharing in the group is not required by participants.
