A lifeline for troubled 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?

Retrouvaille provides marriage help!

Retrouvaille is...
a three-phase program beginning with a weekend experience in which couples are helped to re-establish communication. The second important phase is a series of follow-up sessions over a 6 or 12 week period to expand on the weekend concepts. The final phase is a monthly small-group support meeting called CORE (Continuing Our Retrouvaille Experience).
Retrouvaille is NOT...
a spiritual retreat, a marriage encounter, or a marriage seminar. There are neither group dynamics nor group discussions on a weekend. You will not be asked to share your problems with anyone else. However, you will be encouraged to put the past behind you and to look beyond the hurt and pain, in order to rediscover each other in a new and positive way. The Retrouvaille program provides tools to help couples with communication, forgiveness, and trust.

(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.)
