Before the Marriage Retreat

The Married Love Two Becoming One (ML2B1) Marriage retreat is going to be a wonderful time for the two of you to discuss important issues surrounding entering a lifelong Sacramental Marriage. This weekend is organized around God’s plan for Marriage and the vows you will take on your wedding day. But its focus is on how you will be living these vows out every day of your Marriage.

A large part of the ML2B1 program is a set of activities that will facilitate your conversations with each other.

To make the retreat run as smoothly as possible, we ask couples to complete a couple of the longer activities before the retreat. Each person needs to download and complete the activities and complete them before the retreat day.

And just to make sure you get the most out of your Marriage retreat, and your Marriage, read this section of In Perfect Union on the beauty of Marriage.

As a reminder, you should be in the process of taking the FOCCUS Marriage inventory Please contact your parish to set up an appointment if you haven’t done so already.

One more reminder – you should also be enrolled in the natural family planning course by the time you take your Marriage prep retreat. Please click here to register if you haven’t done so already.

The marriage retreat will be a great time to learn more about the Sacrament of Marriage.
