    Retrouvaille Programme (non-residential)
    Time:9:30am - 4:30pm
    Venue:Welwyn Garden City, Hertfortshire.

    Retrouvaille Programme (non-residential)
    A Lifeline for Troubled Marriages;
    Retrouvaille is the name of a programme designed to help heal and renew marriages.
    The word "Retrouvaille" simply means "rediscovery". The programme offers the chance to rediscover yourself, your partner, and a loving relationship in your marriage.

    The Retrouvaille Programme;
    The weekend is not a 'miracle cure'; therefore, the post-weekend sessions have been designed to continue the marriage renewal begun on the weekend.

    This post-weekend phase is as crucial, maybe more critical, to the healing of marriage problems. During the post-weekend sessions, the technique learned on the weekend is further developed and is used to explore additional areas of the marriage relationship.
    How is it organised?

    The programme is offered on scheduled weekends beginning Friday evening, and closing with Mass late Sunday afternoon.
    The 12 post-weekend sessions are presented in 4 days in the 2 months following the weekend.

    To speak to someone in confidence please telephone us.
    From within UK: 07887 296983 or 0797 338 0443
    From elsewhere: 0044 7887 296983 or 0044 797 3380443

    Time:10:00am - 4:00pm
    Venue:Carmelite Priory in Oxford, Chilswell Ln, Boars Hill, Cumnor, Oxford OX1 5HB, UK

    Led by Fr Liam Finnerty OCD and Angelika Capp


    This Saturday retreat offers married couples the opportunity to invest in the health and vitality of their relationship in an atmosphere of serenity, prayer and companionship.  We will explore together the meaning and mystery of the covenantal bonds of marriage in order to rediscover the key to finding happiness in marriage. 
    Experiences of hurt will be recalled with forgiveness, those of joy will be shared with gratitude, and the uncertainties of the future entrusted to the Lord who offers a peace that the world cannot give (John 14:27) and a plan for a future full of hope and promise (Jeremiah 29:11). 

    During the retreat couples will have the opportunity to pray, reflect and share with each other and, where appropriate, with the group. There will also be an opportunity for spiritual guidance. This Saturday retreat is not intended for individuals.

    Suggested Offering: £30 per person including sandwich lunch and refreshments.
