It provides an opportunity to examine and deepen their commitment to one another,and gives them a realistic and up close view of what a Christian marriage involves.
The Weekend takes the couples on a personal journey into the Sacrament of Marriage and the impact their marriage will have on their friends, family, and world around them.
Rachel’s Vineyard is a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion. Weekend retreats offer you a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where women and men can express, release and reconcile painful post-abortive emotions to begin the process of restoration, renewal and healing.
Married couples, mothers, fathers, grandparents and siblings of aborted children, as well as persons who have been involved in the abortion industry have come to Rachel’s Vineyard in search of peace and inner healing. The weekend is a lot of work but yields a fruitful harvest for all who are willing to labor there.
Retrouvaille is a lifeline for marriages, a program to help couples heal and renew their marriages.
The Retrouvaille Program is for Married Couples Facing Difficult Challenges in their Relationship. It helps couples restore their marriage and rebuild a loving relationship. It is a Christian marriage program, Catholic in origin, where couples of all faiths or no faith background are encouraged to attend. It is primarily a practical program to improve communication, build stronger marriages, and help couples reconnect. Presenters are not trained marriage counselors, but rather couples sharing their personal stories of marital struggles and the tools they used to rediscover their love.
