A Weekend Retreat for Married Couples 

Marriage Retreats are designed to be quiet and reflective times for couples to focus on God, each other, prayer and spiritual growth. This retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius includes reflections on marriage with opportunities for reconciliation, spiritual dialogue, couples time and adoration. The program is designed to give couples concrete tools to help deepen their understanding of themselves and their relationship, and the opportunity to have conversations that help a marriage flourish.
