For support in your marriage.

Marriage Encounter Weekend for Couples to Deepen Their Marriage

Marriage Encounter Weekend is offered to couples in healthy marriages who want to learn new ways to deepen their communication. The ME Weekend is an experience designed to help married couples communicate more intimately with one another. It’s a weekend away from home, family and responsibilities, where, in a comfortable environment, a couple is guided in the discovery of new techniques of communicating and sharing with one another.  The program is designed to help marriages become a true source of strength. Most retreats are held at Cedarbrake Retreat Center from Friday evening (7 p.m.) until Sunday afternoon (5 p.m.).  There are also weekends occasionally held at various Austin area hotels with a similar schedule.  During the summer, Central Texas Marriage Encounter often offers a nonresidential weekend at various parishes in the diocese.  These nonresidential weekends follow the same weekend schedule, although couples sleep at their own homes and the programs are held in various rooms on the parish campus.  For more information and a schedule, please visit the Austin Central Texas Marriage Encounter Web site.

The program helps spouses uncover or re-awaken the love, trust and commitment that originally brought them together.
