Worldwide Marriage Encounter Philippines

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a positive and personal experience for couples, priest and religious, which will offer a technique of loving communication.  It is not a seminar, neither is it a retreat nor marriage counseling.  It’s an opportunity to look deeply into each other relationship and with God.  Also it’s a time to share their feelings, hopes, fears, joys and frustrations.  The personal reflection, and sharing with your spouse will be in the privacy of your own room.  Privacy is carefully protected during the weekend.  You will not be required to express your personal thoughts or feelings with the group.

WWME is a Catholic expression open to all married couples regardless of faith or religion, race, age, education or financial status.

Find out more why we say, “You don’t need a weekend, you deserve one!”

Marriage Encounter is designed to give married couples the opportunity to examine their lives together . . . a time to share their feelings, their hopes, disappointments, joys and frustrations . . . and to do so openly and honestly in a face-to-face, heart-to-heart encounter with the one person they have chosen to live with for the rest of their life. The emphasis of Marriage Encounter is on communication between husband and wife, who spend a weekend together away from the distractions and the tensions of everyday life, to concentrate on each other. It's not a retreat, nor a marriage clinic, nor group sensitivity. It's a unique approach aimed at revitalizing Christian Marriage. This is a time for you and your spouse to be alone together. To rediscover each other and together focus on your relationship for an entire weekend. Every marriage deserves that kind of attention.
Any married couple who desires a richer fuller life together. A marriage can never be too good. Marriage Encounter is designed to deepen and enrich the joys a couple shares together, whether they have been married for only a short time, or many years. marriage Encounter also provides support and encouragement to priests and religious who are dedicated to their vocation in life.
A series of presentations are given by a team of Catholic couples and a Catholic Priest. Each presentation allows you and your spouse a rare opportunity to look at yourselves as individuals, then to look at your marriage and your relationship to one another, and finally to look at your relationship to God, the Church and the world. The weekend starts at 8:00 PM on Friday night and runs until about 4:30 PM on Sunday afternoon.
The weekend is Catholic in orientation and is expressed in the tradition and understanding of the Catholic Church. It is open to all, and so a certain number of spaces are reserved each weekend for couples of other faiths.
YES! The weekend is oriented strictly to each individual couple. You concentrate on your spouse to such and extent that you are hardly aware of the other couples present. The presentations are given to the group as a whole. After each presentation, the husband and wife have time in the privacy of their room for their own personal discussion.
Marriage Encounter weekends are held regularly at retreat center of your locality. In some areas there is a waiting list for the weekend. So, registration several months in advance may be advisable.
The weekend has a cost which is P5,000 per couple, but the experience is priceless. And because no one is ever denied the opportunity of attending a weekend because of a lack of funds, no registration fee is required upfront. Instead, each couple is given a blank envelope and asked to give a donation at the end of the weekend.
