Marriage Discernment

Mini-Retreat for Discerning Marriage

God has given each of us a vocation in life, which we are to prayerfully discern to hear his voice and understand his will for our lives. Similar to a call to the priesthood or religious life, we are called to discern our path to the Sacrament of Marriage if put on our hearts during this process.

Discovering Love with Clarity provides an opportunity to leave busy lives behind, refocus on relationships, and deepen prayer time with God. The retreat will assist you, individually or as a couple, with discovering new insights, reflections, and spiritual resources as you discern the following questions:

  • Are you in a relationship and uncertain about the next step?
  • Are you asking if he or she is, “Mr. or Mrs. Right”?
  • Do you need a solid foundation for your marriage preparation?
  • Do you need tools to make your future relationship better?

All dating and engaged couples are invited to this discernment retreat that may renew your relationship with each other and equip you for a smoother transition to married life.
