Catholic 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 experience the depth of their relationship and God's call to unite them in a marriage. It provides an opportunity to examine and deepen their commitment to one another,and gives them a realistic and up close view of marriage.

The Weekend takes the couples on a personal journey into the Sacrament of Marriage and the impact their marriage will have on their friends, family, and world around them.

"Marriage is the icon of God s 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"

Pope Francis I
