Help us to support the Bishop’s Initiative on marriage! Couples who attend Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekends not only rediscover the joy, intimacy and romance in their relationships, but they also become more active in their parish. Together, we are making marriages, families and our Church stronger and healthier.
The next local Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend is Mar. 31-Apr. 2, 2017 in Herndon, VA. Early sign-up is recommended.
For more information, visit their website at https://renewmarriage-vasouth.org/ or contact them at (757)690-1369. You can also email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
