A lifeline for marriages

A program to Help Couples Heal and Renew their Marriages.

  • Do you feel lost, alone or bored in your marriage?
  • Are you constantly fighting?
  • Or, do you simply shut down?
  • Have you thought about separation or divorce?
  • Does talking about it only make it worse?

Our weekend has begun!

(CMD means Christian Multi-Denominational.  Instead of having a priest and Catholic mass on the weekend, there is a pastoral couple and a devotional service.)

Retrouvaille is...
The Retrouvaille Program consists of a weekend experience combined with a series of 6-12 post-weekend sessions over 3 months. It provides the tools to help put your marriage in order again. The main emphasis of the program is on communication in marriage between husband and wife. It will give you the opportunity to rediscover each other and examine your lives together in a new and positive way.
Retrouvaille is NOT...
It is not a retreat, marriage counseling, or a sensitivity group. There are neither group dynamics nor group discussions on the weekend. It is not a time for hurting; it is a time for healing. While this program cannot guarantee couples will not experience more hurt on the weekend, the programs educates on a strong set of communication tools to increase the chance of healing.
