An atmosphere is created on the WEEKEND in which the Husband and Wife can concentrate exclusively on one another.

 

A series of talks are given by a team of trained couples and a priest. The presentations are given to the group as a whole.  After each presentation the husband and wife have time for reflection and sharing.  There is no group discussion.

The talks are presented by a Catholic Priest and catholic couples but the weekend is OPEN to ALL regardless of their faith or religion.
