HOW TO MAKE A GOOD
Worldwide Marriage Encounter has been a truly
great experience for thousands of couples.
Why not join them by making the WEEKEND?
Encounter aims to renew the Church through the renewal of the Sacraments of
Matrimony and Holy Orders and the vows of the Religious.
The Holy Father John Paul
II has said: “I place much of my hope for the
future in Marriage Encounter”
Worldwide Marriage Encounter is one of the most
successful and dynamic Marriage Enrichment experiences of the world today.
The movement has been
blessed and encouraged by the Holy Father and Bishops all over the world. Today, more than two million couples in over
80 countries have experienced the power and the beauty of the weekend.
The Movement came to India
in 1973. Thousands of couples and a good
number of priests and religious have experienced the WEEKEND.
WEEKENDS (Friday evening to Sunday evening) are held regularly in Bombay
and in many other places in India. Here
in Dubai the WEEKEND is held from Thursday 7.00 pm to Saturday 6.00 pm.
A MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER WEEKEND ??
The Marriage Encounter Weekend is a positive and personal experience
for a couple. It offers them a WAY OF
LOVING COMMUNICATION and gives them an opportunity to LOOK DEEPLY into their
relationship with one another, with God with the Church and the world at large.
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.
WHOM IS MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER ??
Encounter Weekend is:
For GOOD MARRIAGES who desire to be BETTER
For GREAT MARRIAGES who aspire to be GREATER
Encounter is for any couple who want to enrich their marriage. The WEEKEND is designed to increase and
deepen the joys a couple share together, whether they have been married for a
short time or for many years.
Encounter is also for priests and religious who want to revitalize their
relationship with the people of God and
develop an even deeper appreciation for their own vocation.
The talks are presented by
a Catholic Priest and catholic couples but the weekend is OPEN to ALL
regardless of their faith or religion.
MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER BELIEVES:
That Matrimony is a CALL TO LOVE
That there are no limits in LOVE
That we can always GROW
That we can always CHANGE
That our world and the Church is in need of our SACRAMENTAL LOVE
