    Retrouvaille
    Venue:Welwyn Garden City, UK

    During the weekend phase, a team of three couples and a priest give a series of presentations. You will be encouraged to put the past behind you and start re-discovering each other.


    The team presents a technique of communication and practical tools that enables you to take a good look at most areas of your relationship. They will share how they were able to benefit from these techniques themselves. After each presentation you will have a chance to reflect on it by yourself, then discuss it in complete privacy with your spouse.




    The team do not provide marriage advice or counselling.

    LANDINGS PROGRAMME IN WESTMINSTER 2020

    who have felt alienated from the Church, but now want

    participation in the Catholic Church. 

    The Agency for Evangelisation is working with Landings to offer a series of ‘Taster Days’

    across Westminster Diocese, which it is hoped will encourage parish teams

    to undertake training in delivery of Landings programmes.

    in helping Catholics return to active membership of their parish,

    then you are invited to come along to one of the ‘Taster Days.
