Love and Life Programs: Retreat for Couples
I+You=We Marriage Workshop (Spring 2024)
Coming to Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House Mar. 9-10, 2024 is the Love and Life Program 1: I+You=We. Taking the marriage vows “for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part” has both blessings and challenges. Many couples overlook the potential difficulties until after taking the vows and embarking on the journey with their spouse.
Couples of all ages are invited to this weekend workshop, where they will receive valuable examples and encouragement aimed at enriching and fortifying their marriages. This workshop offers fundamental steps to help couples address challenges and prepare for potential issues before they arise.
Guided by host couples and a priest, during the weekend participants will have the opportunity to navigate and heal from wounds within their marriages, gaining insights and resilience for the future. The workshop is tailored for all types of marriages, whether troubled, functional, or strong, with the goal of preventing habits and mistakes that can lead to unhappiness and divorce.
Afterwards, couples will be able to become part of the “Love and Life Community” which serves as a refueling station and a safe harbor for graduates of I+You=We. The community allows couples and families to grow in friendship with others in the area, stay in touch, and refresh and practice the steps learned in I+You=We.
The Program 1 couples workshop will be held at Good Counsel Retreat House beginning Saturday March 9 with 8am Mass and ending Sunday March 10 with 3pm Mass.
The Love and Life Program was created by Father Jay, of the Institute of the Holy Family in Łomianki, Poland. Read more about it here: https://loveandlifeprograms.org/love-and-life-programs-2/married-couples/
