Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend
November 12, 2021 @ 6:00 pm – November 14, 2021 @ 5:00 pm EST
The next Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend is Nov. 12-14 at Notre Dame Retreat House in Canandaigua.
The WWME weekend teaches communication techniques such as active listening, listening with the heart and empathy towards your spouse’s feelings. It is based on the sacrament of Holy Matrimony and expresses the importance of love in the union and encourages this love be taken out into the world in various ministries to serve God by strengthening the couples and families in the church.
The Marriage Encounter gives busy couples much needed time together to focus on each other and deepen their communication. After the Experience, couples often return to their life and families refreshed with renewed commitment to each other.
In honor of what would have been their 35th wedding anniversary on June 21, 2021, Leo Rivera, an active participant in the Worldwide Marriage Encounter community in Rochester, has decided to donate $100 application fees to the first 35 couples who sign up for the weekend, in honor of her late husband, Ed, who passed away unexpectedly on Aug. 1, 2020. Couples can apply at www.wwme.org and use the discount code ED&LEO35.
