​Marriage Encounter offers a weekend experience designed to give married couples the 
opportunity to learn a technique of loving communication that they can use for the rest of their lives. It's a chance to look deeply into their relationship with each other and with God. It's a time to share their feelings, hopes and dreams with each other.

The emphasis of the Marriage Encounter weekend is on the communication between husbands and wives. The weekend provides an environment for couples to spend time together, away from the distractions and tensions of everyday life, while encouraging them to focus on each other and their relationship.

It's not a retreat, marriage clinic, group sensitivity, or a substitute for counseling. It's a unique approach aimed at revitalizing Marriage. The next World Wide Marriage Encounter will be on Friday, September 22 - Sunday, September 24, 2017 at Subiaco Abbey. (For more information call 501-772-1803 or go to
