Couples from Feb 2023 Weekend
" We built deeper insights into each other and the sacrament of marriage. Enjoyed having meaningful conversations and listening to personal stories from the presenting couples"

"We gained better communication techniques and talked about some topics we hadn't considered before."

Couples from April 2022 Weekend

"We feel we grew so much more closer together through the weekend. We grew in knowledge of each other, in unity and in love."

"Both of us come from divorced families so it was very beautiful to witness couples who have been together for 38 / 43 years! Gives us hope!"

"Facilitated deep conversations and self reflection, and gave us the space to have these discussions. Gave us some reassurance that we are prepared to face the challenges of marriage."
