Retrouvaille

Retrouvaille is a weekend program followed by six weekly follow-up sessions designed to help heal and renew troubled marriages. The "retrouvaille" simply means "rediscovery". It is a program that offers couples the chance to rediscover themselves, their spouse, and a loving  marital relationship. Even if couples are thinking of separation or divorce or are already divorced, but want to try again, Retrouvaille can help. Retrouvaille is a Catholic program, but we welcome couples of all faiths. Retrouvaille is designed to "make a troubled marriage good." Retrouvaille is usually scheduled for three weekends per year.
