About Us

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a Movement which aims to give couples who are 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 and Online Experiences 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.

However, we are also part of the Alliance of Catholic Marriage Organisations which aim to support Marriages at all stages of relationship.

Our sister organisation, Engaged Encounter, is a Movement within the Catholic Church which provides couples, who are engaged to be married, with a formal course in marriage preparation.

We hope you are inspired to book one of our Weekends of Online Experiences, if you are in any doubt then don’t hesitate to get in touch through our contact form here.  We wish you all the very best!

With love,
Paul, Bianca & Fr Andy
Marriage Encounter England & Wales National Leadership Team.
