In 1972, Marriage Encounter Weekends began in the Lincoln Diocese to promote Christ-centered married life in accord with Church teachings.
The weekend is designed to help married couples communicate more intimately with one another in order to deepen and enrich their relationship. The weekend is free from everyday routines, distractions and tensions. An atmosphere is created where the couple can concentrate exclusively on one another in a private and confidential environment.
A series of presentations that touch on many aspects of marriage is given by three couples and a Catholic priest. After each presentation the couple has time in the privacy of their own room for personal sharing using the communication techniques learned on the weekend. There are no "group discussions." The weekend starts at 8:00 PM on Friday and runs until 4:00 PM on Sunday. All faith expressions are welcome!
