‘We had drifted apart, living like strangers. Our love was buried under bitterness and anger. We rarely talked and mostly tolerated one another. Thanks to Retrouvaille we were able to begin again and forget past mistakes we had both made’.
‘Just discovering that others have shared our road of pain and made it through gave us courage. Retrouvaille has helped me to save the most valuable thing in my life’
The Retrouvaille (rediscovery) Programme consists of a weekend experience and a number of post weekend meetings. A team of experienced married couples and a priest present the programme.
The presenting couples have known disillusionment, pain, anger and conflict. They have sat where you will sit. They have found a new peace and harmony not previously imagined. They offer hope as they share their personal stories of struggle, reconciliation and healing. They are in a positoon to light up a path through the rough terrain of disillusionment.
It is not a spiritual retreat. It is not a seminar, nor is it counselling. You will not be asked to share your problems with anyone other than your spouse.
You will discover how listening, forgiveness and, above all, dailogue can fan the ember of a troubled marriage into life again. Retrouvaille can renew the grace of the sacrament on a daily basis in your lives.
The programme is rooted in the Catholic tradition but couples of all faiths or none are more than welcome to participate in a weekend.
If you would like to talk to someone, if you would like more information, if you want to register for a weekend programme, please get in touch with us.
The cost of the weekend and follow-up sessions has been kept to a minimum and included meals, accomodation.
