Retrouvaille Logo


Retrouvaille (pronounced ‘retro- vī ‘, with long i ) means “rediscovery”. It is a lifeline of hope and healing for struggling marriages of all ages… even couples who are separated or divorced but want to try again.
  • Retrouvaille  is a three-phase program that begins with a weekend experience, followed by post-weekend presentations, and monthly small group support meetings.
  • It is a Christian peer ministry of couples helping couples with the support of caring clergy members.  It is not counseling or group therapy. Couples who have been through crises leading to the brink of divorce share their stories and the tools they used to heal their marriage. Participants reflect and discuss in complete privacy with their spouse.
  • Though the program is Catholic in origin and has a Christian-orientation, couples of all faiths or no faith background are welcomed. The primary focus is on improving communication and building a stronger marriage, so couples may rediscover the love they have for each other.
  • The non-profit program is available in communities worldwide. Program costs are affordable and no couple is ever turned away because of any financial barrier.
  • Central Wisconsin Retrouvaille hosts 2 programs a year (February & August) at St. Anthony’s Spirituality Center in Marathon.  The next session begins with a weekend held on August 17-19, 2018. It is the last session for 2018.  Early registration is recommended.
