Engaged Encounter

Upcoming Weekends:

  • October 15-16, 2022 (In Person)

Catholic Engaged Encounter is an international marriage preparation program developed over 40 years ago.  In the Diocese of Owensboro, Engaged Encounter is an overnight retreat starting Saturday morning and ending Sunday afternoon at Gasper River Catholic Retreat Center near Bowling Green, KY.

What happens during the retreat?

The Catholic Engaged Encounter weekend contains five interrelated themes: The Family we grew up in, Sacramental Marriage, Communication, Intimacy, and Values. These themes are woven into several talks, focused not on the wedding day, but about a married couple living their life together. “A Wedding is a Day, A Marriage is a Lifetime”. The talks are presented by a priest and married couples in a group setting. The engaged couples are then given “couple time” to focus on each other, writing after each talk, sharing their writings with each other, and discussing their thoughts and feelings with each other in a safe and loving setting.
