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
ENGAGED AND PREPARING FOR MARRIAGE?
An Engaged Encounter Weekend gives you the

and 2 April.

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

something to say about your life.
