MARRIED COUPLES

When someone buys a new a car they usually want to look after it.  The manufacturer recommends that they check the battery, the tyres and the oil and get it serviced on a regular basis.  Relationships also need to have a ‘check-up’ from time to time.
A Marriage Encounter Weekend is an opportunity to enrich your marriage.  The weekend is focussed on various aspects of relationship, including the Catholic Church’s Vision for Marriage. Apart from mealtimes and the concluding Mass, the weekend is spent together as a couple.  There are no group discussions.  Here is a tremendous opportunity to enrich your relationship away from the stresses of everyday life.  The next Weekend to be held in this area is at Park Place, near Fareham from 19 to 21 May.
 
For further details please look on our website www.wwme.org.uk
 

 ENGAGED AND PREPARING FOR MARRIAGE?

An Engaged Encounter Weekend gives you the perfect opportunity. We recommend that couples attend a Weekend well in advance, ideally at least six months before their wedding day. A weekend is to be held at Park Place, near Fareham between 31 March and 2 April.

Lectio Divina has been used by the church for centuries as a tool for deepening prayer life.  Meaning 'Spiritual Reading' it is a way of reading the bible, making your reading a prayer.  It helps you to see how the Holy Spirit , speaking to you through the bible, has something to say about your life.
