Welcome to the Salina Diocese Catholic Engaged Encounter website! We are excited you found us.
Catholic engaged encounter is first and foremost a retreat for engaged couples to get away from the daily grind of life and wedding planning, and take time to truly focus on each other and the life you are starting together. The sharing parts of the weekend occur privately between you and your fiance' in an environment that allows you to truly focus on your relationship without outside input or distraction. A couple that comes into the weekend with an open mind and heart will get the chance to further and deepen their relationship in a meaningful and real way that is difficult to do in our busy everyday lives.
Among the subjects you will have an opportunity to discuss with each other are your ambitions, goals, attitudes about God, sex, money, children, family, and your role in the church and community. Personal reflection and couple discussion are the main focus of our weekend. Since each relationship is in a different place, your private answers will be unique and special to your relationship. While the weekend is primarily for couples who wish to have a sacramental marriage within the Catholic Church, all faiths are welcome and respected on a weekend.
