About this event

The Three to Get Married marriage formation retreat weekend is an opportunity for couples to learn how to put Christ at the center of their marriages as they prepare for the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony.  Mentor couples are also invited and encouraged to attend with their engaged couples.  

The retreat will cover important formation topics such as Communication and Family of Origin, but will also spend time with the treasures of our Catholic faith, such as the importance of prayer, the sacraments, Confession, and the Holy Eucharist.  This is an important part of the marriage formation process, and we are looking forward to having you with us!
