Living in Love

Is your marriage in need of a little TLC?  Has it been a while since you and your spouse spent some time just enjoying each other’s company and concentrating (focusing) on each other?

Maybe it’s time for Living in Love – a unique two-day mini-retreat and workshop for married couples that helps you re-discover the romance, love and joy that attracted you to each other in the first place. The retreat is a series of lively presentations given by trained couples who share personally from their own lives in order to illustrate the content of each exercise with practical, relevant, and inspirational real life examples that set the level of openness for the participants.

Take some time to renew yourselves as a couple and you might just find yourself “in love” again!  To register for a weekend, go to www.livinginlove.org and click on the Living in Love registration button. Then select the weekend you want to attend to fill out the registration form.  For more information, call 877-201-2142 or email PMRCusa@msn.com.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter

All married couples deserve time away from the routine of daily life to enjoy time alone with one another — to focus on one another and their relationship. Worldwide Marriage Encounter is designed to deepen and enrich a couple’s marriage, whether they have been married for only a short time, or for many years.  While the Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend is Catholic in orientation, it is open to couples of all faith expressions.   Any married couple who desires to enrich and renew their marriage is welcome to attend a Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend.   The next local weekend date is October 23-25, 2020.  Please call (609) 741-8012.
Please visit their website for more information:  wwme-southjersey.org.

Retrouvaille - A Lifeline for Troubled Marriages
Retrouvaille is a French word meaning "rediscovery".  The program is helping couples to put the pieces back together and rebuild loving relationships.   Retrouvaille consists of a weekend experience and a series of presentations in the weeks that follow.  Retrouvaille is Catholic in origin and orientation, but is open to all married couples regardless of religious background.  Retrouvaille is unique in that it is presented by married couples who themsleves have experienced disillusionment, pain, anger and conflict who offer hope as they share their personal stories of struggle, reconciliation and healing.  There is also a priest who participates in the weekend, although it is not a spiritual retreat, nor is it a sensitivity group, seminar or counseling.

This weekend helps couples discover how listening, forgiveness, communication and the dialogue process are powerful aids for building a loving and lasting relationship.  There is hope!  All weekend programs are held at the beautiful and serene Malvern Retreat House in Malvern, PA.
