Something like retrouvaille for unmarried couples


my friend who is divorced just got engaged. her fiancee is also divorced. Is there something like retrouvaille or something christian that they can avail of to understand the marriage based on the concepts of God. Both of them have been through a lot of hurt becos of the divorces.


Many Catholic parishes or dioceses have a prayer and reconciliation weekend retreat for divorced Catholics. It is usually announced in parish bulletins. They should call their parish or diocesan family life office to inquire what is offered nearby.


A lot of couples go on Engaged Encounter during marriage prep. It’s related to Marriage Encounter and Retrovaille, designed by the same people I think, so it would be of the same vein. HTH.


hope they both have their Decree of Nullity (annulments):wink:
