The Engaged Encounter Weekend offers couples a unique opportunity to look at their commitment to each other in a deeper way as they prepare for marriage. It gives them the opportunity to focus exclusively on each other for 44 hours in peaceful surroundings, free from the pressure and distractions of the outside world. Though Catholic in origin, this experience is open to any engaged couple wanting to prepare for a deeper, more meaningful life together. The Weekend is an in-depth, private, personal, marriage preparation experience within the context of Catholic faith and values.

The weekend is open to any couple who are engaged, or considering engagement wanting to prepare for a deeper, more meaningful life together in the belief that marriage is between a man and a woman, and to be recognized by the Catholic Church.
