Welcome to Marriage Encounter!

A Marriage Encounter weekend is a process that married couples experience in the course of two or three days. This weekend gives spouses an opportunity to grow in their marriage through open and honest communication, face-to-face sharing, and heart to heart encounter in a comfortable, relaxed setting.

NME invites and encourages married couples of all ages and faith expressions to share in this experience and to become an integral part of this journey.

  • The time spent was most valuable. It's given our marriage a new perspective, a new energy and enthusiasm.
