Help for Marriages

2019 "Retrouvaille" Weekends

The Retrouvaille program is for married couples facing difficult challenges in their relationship.  Retrovaille is:

  • a marriage program that helps couples restore their marriage and rebuild a loving relationship.
  • a Christian marriage program, Catholic in origin, where couples of all faiths or no faith background are encouraged to attend.
  • primarily a practical program to improve communication, build stronger marriages, and help couples reconnect.
  • lead by presenters not trained as marriage counselors, but rather are couples sharing their personal stories of marital struggles and the tools they used to rediscover their love.
