Engaged Encounter is an international ministry dedicated to marriage formation based on the Catholic faith. It is composed of married couples and priests, whose common bond is their belief in the Sacrament of Marriage and family life.

The Catholic Engaged Encounter retreat is a weekend experience that offers engaged couples a once in a lifetime opportunity to discover the fullness of their relationship and God's call to unite them in a marriage. It provides the opportunity to examine and deepen their commitment to one another, and gives them a clear view of what a Christian marriage involves.

The Weekend takes the couples on a personal journey into the Sacrament of Matrimony, what it means to them individually, and the impact their marriage will have on the world around them. Though the Weekend is given in a group setting, the couples are asked to focus on each other and all sharings are private between themselves.

Pope Francis I

"Marriage is the icon of Godís love for us.
Indeed, God too is communion: the three Persons of the
Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit have always lived
and live forever in perfect unity.
And this is the mystery of marriage:
God makes married couples into one existence"
