Who should attend an Engaged Encounter

The programme is for couples of any age, who are preparing to marry and are mature enough to believe their good relationship can become even better.

For couples planning to be married in the Catholic Church, marriage preparation is compulsory. Other programmes are available but it is our belief that the Engaged Encounter weekend offers a unique and intensive experience to couples.

The weekend is Catholic in orientation and is presented by two Catholic couples and a priest but couples of other faiths are welcome.


The live-in weekend starts with registration on Friday evening and ends on Sunday afternoon.

Through a series of presentations based on the lived experience of the team the engaged couples are exposed to a number of relevant issues and encouraged to reflect and then discuss these privately from the perspective of their own unique relationship. This couple sharing is the most important part of the weekend.
