Engaged Encounter


Engaged Encounter provides quality marriage preparation primarily for couples who are planning to marry in the Catholic Church. However, couples who are not Catholic are also welcome to attend the weekend. It is an intensive weekend in which the couple is offered the time and opportunity to question, examine, and deepen their relationship with each other and God. Topics covered include: self-awareness, human sexuality, communications, decision making, Natural Family Planning, vocation, sacrament, unity, and more.
