A lifeline for marriages


What is a Retrouvaille Program?

Retrouvaille is an international organization.  The Retrouvaille Program consists of a weekend experience combined with post-weekend sessions.  The program provides the tools to help put your marriage in order again.  The main emphasis is on communication between husband and wife.  The program offers you the opportunity to rediscover each other and examine your lives together in a new and positive way.


What happens in a Retrouvaille Program?

During the weekend phase, a series of presentations are given by a team of three couples and a priest.  The team presents a technique of communication that enables you to take a fresh look at most areas of your relationship.  After each presentation, you have time in the privacy of your room to reflect on the previous topic.  During the post sessions, the techniques introduced during the weekend are further developed and combined with additional tools to explore other areas of the marriage relationship.


Who will benefit?

All marriages will benefit, yet couples with troubled marriages, including separated or divorced couples, open to working on their marriages will benefit.


Is the program faith based?

The program is Catholic in origin.  Couples of all faiths and those of no particular faith tradition are welcome.
