Marriage Renewal

The Marriage Renewal Retreat may be just what your marriage needs.  The retreat is open to all marriages in all stages.  Whether you have been married for a few months or 60 years, you bring gifts to the weekend.  Whether you are in a good place or could use a few new tools, this retreat could be for you.  The Marriage Renewal Retreat is a weekend meant to focus on God's plan for your marriage, strengthen marriage, build community and allow couples to realized that others are and have gone through some of the same struggles of life.  We talk about God & church, our nuclear families, communication, the sacrament of marriage, forgiveness and many other important topics that affect who we are.

Your desire to share is completely optional.  You will find that you'll have time on this weekend retreat to rediscover why and how you fell in love in the first place.  Answer some questions as to where you are going and how are you living this beautiful sacrament of marriage?

The weekend is open to non-Catholics, Catholics and those of mixed religion marriages.  We feed you six meals and offer snacks.  We offer Mass for you on Sunday and plenty of time to get to know other couples on the weekend.

For those that have small children to consider, we offer a Kids Camp.  The camp is designed to serve children from newborn to 12 years old.  Our trained staff, with some volunteers, will entertain & feed your children along with making sure they go to Mass at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and have gym and/or outside play time.  Young infants are welcome to stay with their parents if you so desire.  There is a small fee for the camp.

 

The Marriage Renewal Retreat has served approximately 380 couples over ten years.  66 of those couples continue to meet each month in eleven marriage circles.  The depth of faith and marriage that these couples have experienced is immeasurable.  If you want to grow your faith, marriage and community, a marriage circle may be just what you are looking for.

Watch for registration in your bulletin beginning in November.
