Marriage Retreat

April 13-15, 2018

Bob Perron

The Family Life Office is pleased to bring our married couples in the Diocese of Owensboro an opportunity to attend our “Encountering the Gift of Marriage” Married Couple’s Retreat on April 13-15, 2018 at Kenlake Resort Lodge in Hardin, Kentucky.

This retreat is led by Bob Perron, co-founder of Catholic Family and Marriage, Inc.  Mr. Perron’s  presentations leave his audiences laughing, smiling, deeply thinking, and perhaps even shedding a tear or two. His excitement, enthusiasm, and love have motivated and inspired thousands of young people and adults. Mr. Perron has spoken at hundreds of diocesan youth conferences and parish missions in over 40 states along with several countries. He has recently been the MC at the National Mass and Rally for Life in Washington, DC, spoke at the Los Angeles Congress youth day and was a keynote presenter at NCYC 2014 in Indianapolis.


There are three options to consider when registering for the retreat. They are as follows:

  • Commuter – $75 per Couple: this is perfect for that couple not planning on spending the night at the lodge, but commuting daily. Price does include breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday.
  • One Night – $155 per Couple: includes one night lodging for Friday, April 13; continental breakfast; lunch and dinner on Saturday.
  • Two Nights – $235 per Couple: includes same as above but with one additional night lodging for Saturday, April 14.
