Presented by three married couples and a priest, the Weekend is a workshop that offers married couples in a good relationship (normal ups and downs) the opportunity to explore, renew and enrich their relationship in a way that completely respects their privacy. While our Weekends are Catholic in their ethos, we welcome married couples of all faiths.

A Zoom-based Marriage Encounter Weekend costs €50 / £45 per couple.

A Marriage Enrichment Weekend is a residential workshop for sacramentally married couples. It is a unique opportunity to enjoy quality time away from the distractions of work, children and other everyday interruptions and to enrich your marriage relationship.

The aim of the Weekend is to create a warm relaxed atmosphere in which husband and wife can explore and share their feelings, hopes, joys, fears, needs and differences in private. It provides a positive and thought provoking experience by helping couples communicate and listen more effectively to each other.

Participants learn new techniques of communication to help them build and enjoy a deeper richer relationship which they can continue to use at home. They also receive handouts and are encouraged to take notes.

A Marriage Enrichment Weekend is for couples with good marriages, at any stage of married life, who are open to the possibility of something more. While the Weekend has a Catholic ethos, it is open to married couples of any faith or of none who would not find such ethos to be an issue for them. However, please note that Marriage Encounter is not an alternative for couples who believe they are in need of counselling.

Catholic Marriage Encounter in Ireland and Catholic Marriage Encounter Northern Ireland are affiliates of WORLDWIDE MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER - a global Catholic voluntary movement of the Lay Faithful (listed by the Pontifical Council for the Laity; www.laici.va/content/laici/en/sezioni/associazioni/repertorio/incontri-matrimoniali-mondiali-.html ) that offers the Marriage Enrichment Weekend in 94 countries. In Ireland we are one of the Marriage and Family support organizations who work closely with the Council for Marriage and the Family of the Irish Bishops Conference.
