A Wedding is a Day
Marriage is a Lifetime
Catholic Engaged Encounter is an investment in the future.
Catholic Engaged Encounter is a wonderful weekend experience offering you the time and opportunity to deepen your relationship with each other and with God. Although Catholic in origin, Catholic Engaged Encounter is open to any couple of any faith who are preparing for a marriage.
In 1992, Pope John Paul, II proclaimed Catholic Engaged Encounter as a Vatican approved marriage preparation program.
Formal engagement is not necessary; a couple need only to be seriously considering marriage. Facilitated by volunteer presenting teams, you and your future spouse learn valuable communication and conflict resolution skills, explore the role of religion and values in your lives and discuss important topics like children, marriage as a sacrament and the power of commitment. You will be stimulated to discuss privately with each other all aspects of married life- always from the viewpoint of your own relationship. The emphasis is not on lectures or group discussions. this is a private experience in a quiet and informal setting. Personal reflection and couple dialogue are the main focus of the weekend. The weekend experience consists of personal presentations, individual reflection and focused discussions with your future spouse. Take time out of your busy lives to focus on your relationship with each other and God.

Why Should We Attend
Think of all the preparation you have done for your career. Many of us spend years studying and learning a trade. Think of the preparation you’re doing for your wedding day. Most people spend close to a year planning, and thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars, for their wedding.How much time and effort do people spend on preparing for what they hope will last 50 or 60 years – our marriage? Ask yourself this question, “Am I willing to spend 2 days devoted to hearing ideas and learning skills that will help make my marriage the best it can be?
