What is the cost?

Marriage Encounter receives very little external financial support. Its work is mostly financed by the donations of couples who have attended weekends. The team couples and priest present the weekend on a completely voluntary basis.

Others have gladly given so you can experience the weekend without having to worry about whether you can afford it.

Apart from the registration fee of £50 per couple for a Marriage Enrichment weekend, the weekend is free! It is offered to you as a gift – the whole cost including accommodation and food is covered; there are no hidden extras.

At the end of the weekend you will be given the opportunity to help towards the cost of future weekends if you wish.


What is Worldwide Marriage Encounter?

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a Movement which aims to give couples who are engaged, married, or in long-standing relationships and commitment the opportunity to enrich and refresh their relationships. It also seeks to give priests and religious the chance to reflect on their vocation and enhance their relationship with their parish and community.

Weekends are Catholic in origin and ethos. Couples of any or no faith are also most welcome. Since its launch, over 5 million couples in almost 100 countries have experienced a Weekend.

Marriage Encounter is not aimed at marriages or relationships that are in difficulty, because the Movement does not offer advice or counselling for marriages in crisis.

We wish you all the very best!

With love,

Charles & Krysia, with Fr Andy

Marriage Encounter England & Wales National Leadership Team.
