Worldwide Marriage Encounter

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is considered the first marriage enrichment program offered to married couples.

The story of Marriage Encounter began in 1952 when a young priest in Spain, Father Gabriel Calvo, began developing a series of conferences for married couples, whose focus was on the development of an open and honest relationship within marriage and learning to live out a sacramental relationship. As of 2010, the Weekend is now offered in numerous languages and dialects in over 90 countries.

Marriage Encounter (ME) is designed to give mar­ried couples the opportunity to examine their lives together… a time to share their feelings, their hopes, disappointments, joys and frustrations; and to do so openly and honestly with the one person they have chosen to live with for the rest of their lives. The emphasis of ME is on communication between husband and wife, who spend a weekend together, away from the distractions and the tensions of eve­ryday life, to concentrate on each other.

It is not a retreat, nor a marriage clinic, nor group sensitivity. It is a unique approach aimed at revital­ising Christian Marriage. For further enquiries, do contact the SFX ME Coordinators.
