The weekend is designed to help married couples communicate more intimately in order to deepen and enrich their relationship. The weekend is free from everyday routines, distractions and tensions. An atmosphere is created where the husband and wife can concentrate exclusively on each other in a private 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.” All faith expressions are welcome!
Online Registration for all Sunday School, Wednesday Religious Education, and High School Ministry can be found below.

Your spiritual guides on this retreat will be Fr. Richard Reiser, pastor, spiritual director, iconographer and potter; Michelle Stinson, wife, mother, and potter who has 20 years of clay experience.
Through prayer, clay and Scripture we will be listening for the voice of the Father, seeking his guidance, and experiencing his healing touch. Personal experiences with clay will allow participants to see Jesus as the one who restores us to the Father and brings us into new life through the Holy Spirit.
There will be opportunities for hands on experience with clay using the potter’s wheel, no previous experience needed. Eucharist, Reconciliation, Spiritual Direction and personal prayer times will be offered.
